Well…I can dream, can’t I? I love Lanikai Beach in Oahu. The first time I saw a photograph of this beach, I knew I had to get there to shoot this location. I finally got my chance last year.
This image is all about composition and colors. I wanted to make my viewers feel that they could walk right into a large-size print. I got nice and close to the waves in the foreground in order to capture the details in the foam as they rolled in. In a large print, you’ll be able to see individual grains of sand and flow lines in the moving water. I used a circular polarizer filter to help bring out the colors in the water and sky.
