Napali Coast Wallpaper


I took this as the morning fog was lifting. Click goes to the bigger version.

I saw this emerging and knew that I needed a longer lens than I had, to compress the different-toned promontories a bit more, but this still turned out OK I think. The scene was nearly black and white anyway, with the morning light very gray.

Looking for something like this, this weekend. Not this, but maybe the feeling I had when I saw it emerging from the morning, out of the water, into the sunlight. Maybe that's me, or my feeling: emerging from the morning, out of the water, into the sunlight. Set as my desktop wallpaper, that fringe of white water crashing on the bottom of the rocks draws my eye instantly. Though small, it's the heart of this photograph. I may not go back to this place soon, not physically. But seeking a calm, single memory to return to, a center point, this one works for me.

Have a Napali Cost in the morning fog kind of weekend, maybe.

    1. I think even if I saw this every morning it would still cause me to stop and lose track of time as I watched.

  2. Reminds me of one of the best commute segments in the world: Riding along the Ka Iwi coastline on Kalanianaole Highway at dawn. Part of my old commute from Kalama Valley to UH Manoa. And to think I'm not there any more. Painful...

    1. Sorry Khal, spam filter ate this comment until I noticed it. I would love to ride that commute route a little bit, maybe a few decades or so. I took a look at it on G00gle maps, it looks perfect: HI commute route

    2. Also, we stopped at Kawaikui Beach Park for a quick picnic, which looks like it's right in the area you mentioned.
