Life Through My Lens

#264 The Deep Blue Sea

| August 18, 2009

On The Edge, 2009 This photo was taken just East of Haumana Bay at a scenic overlook along Kalanianaole Highway.  I do not know the man in the photo, but I knew when the wave broke behind him I would have the opportunity to capture an incredible photo.
