Risking His Life for a Thrill
The little crazy man who is looking down from just above the lava that explodes as it hits the water and might at any moment undermine the surface that it is coming from went way past the fences that are meant to keep people off the most dangerous areas. I was aghast! But he does provide a great sense of scale for my photo. For me, it was a sufficient thrill to stand where I was! This shot was taken at about 4 AM despite what my camera says...I forgot to change the time setting for HI's time zone.
Long Waterfalls from Helicopter
From the helicopter ride
Lava from Boat
We planned this trip to Hawaii a year ago before we knew about the new lava flow into the ocean that started about two months ago. When we heard that it was happening we tweaked our trip to add adventures around it. The helicopter tour was a bit of a disappointment but not so the boat approach. We rode in a pretty big metal sided catamaran that was able to get really close. Watching the lava explode as it hit the ocean with fragments bursting in air! WOW!
Close Turtle Encounter 2
we had a totally thrilling swim this morning with a sea turtle who came really close...so close I was almost afraid for a moment and had to back up to get any shots!
Twilight Waves On Lava
Playing a bit with long exposure. There is something about the moody feel of this that I like a lot.
Taking Fluff Back to the Nest
I took a quick trip before the rain started again down to the lake where hummers are often busy with nest building at this time of year. I wasn't disappointed. My shoulder still can't hold my big camera and lens for any length of time but at least I got a few shots before it started screaming
Sea Turtle Coming Up for Air
we had a totally thrilling swim this morning with a sea turtle who came really close...so close I was almost afraid for a moment and had to back up to get any shots!
Sunset AT Manini Beach
Ahhhh! So wonderful to be in warm weather. I took my camera out to play with different shutter speeds last eve.
Saffron Finch Enjoying a Splash
This little sweet saffron finch was making stars as he splashed.
Morning Twilight Boat Trips to the Lava
This was shot at the overlook after hiking out there at 3 AM! Worth it though. The big gray metal sided catamaran is the boat day before yesterday's shot was taken from so you can see how close we were. You can see the red hot fragments breaking up after exploding in the water.
Lava Close Up
I was so thrilled with seeing the lava in the ocean. This is a closeup taken from the boat trip. Isn't the lava gorgeous?
Haven't Shed My Rack Yet
Spent the day in a class to learn my new camera and my brain is fried...off to Portland tomorrow and we fly to HI on Monday...ahhh to sun and warmth! This beauty and his harem were in our yard yesterday...shot through a window. I thought bull elk would have shed their antlers by now, but he sure hasn't.

Can't hodld my camera with bird lens because of injured shoulder but needed a bird fix so I went back to some photos from the raptor center

Water Under A Bridge
A friend and I went to the Umqua for Fall color and waterfalls. The color was a bit muted but lots of water in the falls after so much rain
Tiger with Background
I loved this Exquisite Sumatran Tiger but it was hard to see him in a cage rather than running free. Apparently his species is seriously endangered and the wildlife safari is taking good care of him but I wanted to imagine him free so I placed him in a couple of different backgrounds. Clearly is photoshopped but I wanted to creat an image of what I might imagine for him. Our camera club had a fabulous outing at theildlife Safari in Winston, OR. Only three of us ended up going but we had a thrilling time.
Taking a Leap
I was composing a river shot and noticed a couple of men with kayakspassing through my frame. I stopped what I was doing thinking a picture of kayaks would be even better. Turned out they weregoing to take their kayaks and leap off a high wall into the gorge! YIKES. I put together a composite to show the amazing sequence
Reflections On the Upper Rogue River
A friend and I went to the Umqua for Fall color and waterfalls. The color was a bit muted but lots of water in the falls after so much rain
