Waianapanapa (Y-ahna-pahna-paw) means, 'glistening waters' and they are not kidding!

There are many ways to photograph this black sand beach near Hana, Maui. But it takes a while to figure out how to do it. In this moment, the sand was briefly wet and reflected the last glowing light from the clouds above. It took a while for a wave to break just when the sand was glowing. I tried for a long time before the timing was right. A few minutes later the light was gone for the day.

If you don't capture it at the right moment, the beach becomes a completely black and empty blob. I was lucky!

0.5 second exposure @F16 with ND grads 0.9 + 0.6

Sunday evening California time seems to be the only time I can sneak in an upload so I'll take what I can get right now.

Yes, Jeanie. Late evening for me is almost the same for you!

Les, don't forget to bring the grad line all the way down to the black sand. It is your only hope to show the sand at all!

lol Mike! (humie)

I suppose you are right Brian, it was part luck in that the light opened up at the right time, but I was ready for it if it were to happen!

I know Tommy, I wish I had more time during the day but there is too much going on right now. Still, I'll try.

Yes Geoff, timing is almost everything it seems!

I'll have to see them Malcolm.

Thanks for looking!

It is good to be back Kim. I wish I had more EPZ time.

House hunting Edgar? You may have a few choices so take your time. A long time. Maybe a year or two unless you have to sell an existing place now.

I am doing well Jouko. I built a dog house for my Border Collie and I'm waiting for my new 5D mk II to arrive sometime in November I think. It would be nice for a few clouds to stop by though. Still no rain since February though we had a close call a couple of weeks ago.

True Brian. I was ready, but I was lucky in that the light was great for a few minutes when it looked like I was out of luck earlier!

A wonderful beachscape Patrick, just what we've come to expect from you. The name of the place is a bit of a mouthful though!
