Eyes in the back of my head.

I went for a little surf sesh after work today and as I was unloading the board from the back of my truck, here was this eye-catching image. Nice little peeling waves in front of me and the West Maui Mountains bejeweled in a rainbow to my back.

I have to say I never get tired of that view whilst sitting on my board. The blues of the water and sky contrasted with the greens of the mountains and palm trees. While the rhythm and tempo of the colors change, the music they make is always tantalizingly appropriate.


Here is the sunset from today’s little session. The reason I posted this was because if you've had at least one beer, it looks like three pieces of the same torn photo (laid out with a slight lean to the right!). Whilst its kinda obvious those are palm trees dissecting the image into thirds…I can be a bit peculiar & I like forcing my eyes & mind to see it another way.

As always, great piccies and write-ups - no wonder you did so well in your English at school.
Don't put yourself down with your spelling - I think it's greatly improved since you moved over to the States (they don't use as many alphabet letters as we do)!!

Great photos Sharon. You were able to meld together the vision of the waves and the one of the mountain from a point in the middle of them. Impossible even with a superwide angle lens.

One crappy Itailian.

Impressed by the Itailian's use of the word "meld" - good to read intelligent English/European

Pure luck, Mater70... What I meant was "melt"...
