It was a beautiful June day in Oahu, Hawaii. Not too hot, with gentle breezes. The ocean was delightful as were the mountains in the distance. It was like I owned that beach, as I mounted my camera on tripod and danced around in the sand posing every which way. I even garnered an admirer who parked his car and gazed at me while I took shot after shot. Eventually he drove away, and I packed up my gear and continued my drive around the island.
I am a New York girl. Growing up visiting the beaches on the Atlantic Ocean, a stark contrast to the beaches in Hawaii. With its turquoise seas, pounding surf, and rainstorms that occur in the mountains without touching the sea. Hawaii was a mesmerizing magical place when I visited. Every time I gaze at this image I am transported back to that very moment and my heart fills with cheer.
I love watercolor paintings; they make the scene dreamy with a touch of nostalgia and a whole lot of whimsy.
