Mesmerized by the sea

The Hilo coast of the Big Island is wet and wild. There is something about the sound of the wind and pounding surf that is mesmerizing. It is so completely powerful.

This is like being a surfer and waiting for the best wave to come in. It gets to be an obsession! You only stop when your telephoto lens is in jeopardy and you are perched on a precarious ledge plastered to a tree in order to stay upright for the big one.


  1. That blue color of the water is amazing.

  2. Awesome photos Leslie...
    Love the deep blue water against the black rocks...
