Sea Turtles

Swimming the seas for over 180 million years, Sea Turtles are ancient guardians of the oceans.

Slipping through the looking glass from Hawaii’s tropical shoreline into the warm ocean water sometimes gives you a chance to see these ancient ones. As they swim by they seem to be in flight. It takes patience and a lot of time watching from a distance to observe their natural behavior towards each other. Because of this, I’ve observed some rare and amazing interactions between Hawaii’s Green Sea Turtles. 

May our respect and courtesy be given to the land and its wildlife and to the ocean and its sea life.

 

Beaches

Aqua-azure waters are edged by pristine beaches and heavens of whispering clouds.

Feeling the warmth of the ocean’s breeze gently caressing your face while inhaling the energy of a tropical shoreline ….. ah, what a feeling. Cleansing one’s mind while soothing one’s soul. Filling your heart with tranquility, yet drawn by the adventure of exploring life’s many paths. Let the ocean’s aqua-azure waters soothe and cleanse you, allowing yourself to follow the passions of your heart.

Waves

Waves are the force of nature that create ever-changing patterns.

Silky ribbons of soft tropical ocean playfully unfold themselves in this collection of wave sculptures. Thundering as they break in the early morning light, blue-azure waves are laced with sea spray. A wave 25 feet high rises as a north swell clashes with the island’s reef, creating a remarkable crescendo in the form of an ornamental sea fan. I hope my images will help raise awareness of the need to preserve the integrity of Hawaii’s natural treasures.

 

Sea Life

Slipping through the looking glass from Hawaii’s tropical shoreline into the warm ocean water sometimes gives you a chance to see extraordinary sea life.

One of my most sacred experiences was witnessing the courtship of the Eagle Ray. It is truly a magnificent dance. These two Spotted Eagle Rays swam together for hours, gracefully gliding as if they were flying through the ocean’s aqua waters.

Their courtship dance was one of gentle persuasions mixed with moments of high energy propulsion. After mating, their dance became one of synchronism. At times their wing-like pectoral fins would be within an inch of each other as they swam side by side in graceful patterns.

Sea and Sky

The cloud filled heavens above the ocean’s colorful patterns beckon one to venture into the beauty.

Allow yourself to step out of time into these heavens of daydreams above aqua-azure waters. Inhale the essence of these moments, cleansing one’s mind while soothing one’s soul. Listen to the heavens of whispering clouds.

I hope my images will help raise awareness of the need to preserve the integrity of Hawaii’s natural treasures. May our respect and courtesy be given to the land and its wildlife and to the ocean and its sea life.
