Weekly Photo Challenge: Glimmering Sunset

Glimmering Sunset

This week’s challenge calls for a muse. You might have noticed I have a thing for the ocean and sunsets. Granted, I’m a nature lover in general, but there’s something alluring about the ocean; it gives you a sense of scale and your location on the Earth. You can watch the sun vanish before your eyes, giving you a greater insight of the astronomy and physics involved. The horizon practically begs you to venture forth and find out what’s out there. The ocean is one Earth’s great remaining mysteries; you can just stand there and wonder what lurks beneath the surface. You can breathe in the salty air, feel the wind your skin, and hear the waves endlessly crashing onto the shore…Yeah, I love it. This is one of many photos I took during my most recent trip. I’ll be posting more throughout the week; though they won’t all be sunsets, they’ll definitely involve oceans.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Divisadero At Dusk

Divisadero At Dusk

This week’s challenge is all about stuff being enveloped, and I remembered a particularly spectacular February evening in San Francisco. This was taken at the very end of Divisadero Street, by the marina. Not only was the sunset amazing, but the clouds coming in seemed to swallow the city whole. Large version available here.

Because after spending all day on a road trip, there’s only one place to get a fresh marlin burger.

Royal Kona Luau Fire Dance

Because nothing says the holidays like…a Hawaiian luau with a fire dancer? I took this at the Royal Kona Resort a few weeks back. Happy New Year, folks.

This week’s challenge calls for something warm (definitely needed here right now!), and I immediately thought of this awesome sunset I saw during the Royal Kona Luau on the Big Island.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime, Or: Kihei Lifeguard House

Kihei Lifegaurd House

This week’s challenge is all about pictures taken at night. I don’t have many of them, but I remembered something I took on my phone during my last night on Maui…
