So I went backpacking this weekend. And I took a few pictures. I’m hoping to get at least one of those up here at some point this week. Also, I’ve got more pictures from Point Reyes. Maybe you’ll see one of those too. But in the meantime, here’s another shot of some dude surfing at sunset. This was in Turtle Bay, at the northern tip of Oahu, in Hawaii.
Have a great rest of the day, and try to stay cool out there, unless you’re in the southern hemisphere or Seattle, in which case, grab a coat.

Hey everyone. This was supposed to be posted yesterday, but by the time I got around to it, the day was over. So it got pushed back today. This is another picture from my recent trip to Hawaii. I took this from the Turtle Bay Resort, where we were staying. Turtle Bay is on the north shore of Oahu. I hadn’t realized it before we headed out there, but that’s the famous “North Shore” that gets all the huge waves that are legendary among surfers. We saw some decent-size waves, but the REALLY big ones never made an appearance while we were there. What waves we did see though tended to roll in right around sunset, so we had the opportunity to watch some folks surf while sitting at the hotel bar each night. Good times. The landscape around the hotel worked out pretty well, because it sits on a spit of land, so you’d get to watch these waves roll right on by as they were breaking (as opposed to sitting on the beach and watching them break way out to sea.) Thus, I was able to get this picture. It was (obviously) getting dark, so I had to crank up the ISO and underexpose the shot in order to get a reasonable shutter speed, so the colors aren’t as vivid as they would be otherwise. But whatever.
Anyway, enjoy the rest of your day, and I’ll try to get another one posted tomorrow, I promise.
