This past weekend one of my fiance's friends from her undergraduate days visited us on O'ahu, after completing a 6 month internship on the Big Island. So we did the usual tour of O'ahu, showing her most of the west side of the island including Ko Olina, Makaha, and Kaena Point. We watched the sunset at Kaena Point along with a few of my photographer friends, so we naturally took plenty of photos. The sunset wasn't the most spectacular, but I've been wanting to photograph more seascapes lately after finishing my latest time lapse movie (stay tuned for that post). There are just endless varieties of seascapes one can take, and each one is never the same. Below is one of my photos from that day, which I'm thinking of calling "Into the Deep." I happened to catch a particularly large wave as it washed upon some rocks near Kaena Point, which is at the northwestern tip of O'ahu. I took a lot of variations of the same scene, but this one was my favorite. By this point the sun had already set and there was still a nice warm glow from the horizon. This is a nice color contrast to the azure blue color of the sea. The rocks on the lower right side looks like it is being swallowed by the wave, hence the name.
