Almost #1,000,000! ..lol!

This red sand beach is just outside of Hana on the east side of Maui, and is rather difficult to get to at high tide, especially in the dark before sunrise. The old path was washed away by a landslide and the waves at high tide make it difficult to run across the beaches between waves. But high tide is needed for the waves to wash over the rocks you see here. And the remaining part of the path is crumbly and right above a sheer drop into the ocean!

I moved around until I positioned the sun in the corner to act as a spotlight on the rest of the scene. The rocks really are that red and the red sand to the left is even more red.

1.6-second exposure @F16 with ND grads 0.9 + 0.75 angled at 8am-2pm. Both grads were pulled down to the pebbled beach which was a very dark red.

Usually that exposure length results in ugly cottony water so I had to wait for the water to be flowing smoothly just as a new wave crashed over the rocks known as The Dragon's Teeth.'

I'm glad you liked it!

This side of the island is very difficult to photograph and I have lots of ugly ones to prove it! Fortunately a few turned out well. I have more classic ones of the golden sand beaches with some good light that I'll upload later.

I have a bit of EPZ catching up to do.....

Thanks for looking!

Mike, I think it looks that way because some of the water was smooth and reflective and then foam would move over those areas during the 1.6 seconds that the shutter was open. So the reflection was underneath the foam.

Well Suzie, the road to Hana was fine. Not even much rain. There are some nice beaches along the way if you don't mind slogging through the slippery rain forest. I will get you back because I don't have any condition which would require the use of psychotropic drugs.... Just ask my friend Ansel whis is right besid... Ansel?

Compositionally very powerful. The flow of water is one of the best captures I've seen for a while, beautiful detail in the movement, if you get what I mean! The rocks hold the sides of the shot superbly and the sun creeping up is the icing on the cake so to speak.
Inspirational stuff!

Stunning shot, Patrick. I love the rush of water over the rocks and thanks for your detailed description on how you used your filters.

I recently tried some seascape shots and the surf kept blowing out, next time i will try pulling my filters down to the beach like you have hear Pat as it seems to control the scene better, thanks for the tip.
