Everyone knows there are spectacular beaches in Hawaii – my favorite is Kailua Beach on Oahu. The view in this image is from Kailua Beach looking towards two well known islands called the Mokulua Islands. They are affectionately known as the Mokes. One is a bird sanctuary and the other is a popular spot to swim to with the perfect cliff for diving into the pristine water.
I remember on previous visits laying on the beach looking up at the palm trees and loving the way they looked against the blue sky. Just looking up and moving around the palms created some interesting compositions worth capturing. I visited several beaches while I was on Oahu but this image was made at Kailua Beach.
