the beautiful Waimea Bay

The second of the four beaches I visited last Monday is one of the most famous beaches up on the North Shore on Oahu, Waimea Bay. I don't go to this beach too often because it the beach only has a tiny parking lot and no matter what time of day I try to find a space, it always seems to be full. Last Monday, luck was on my side. I was there at the right time just when someone was about to leave. Here are some photos I took last week of the beautiful Waimea Bay.

Fantastic! Now, if I could keep my personal computer on long enough (problems), I would post a shot I took of the divers off the rocks from the late 70's.....Hawaii's beaches are breathtaking - no ka oi:-)

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, these are beautiful. The clouds looks almost 3D. Very cool. Are you using any filters or anything to have that effect? The guy in the paddle board is a cool shot.

Thanks so much for sharing. Hope you enjoy Game 6 . :)

menehune, sorry to read about your computer problems.

Kathy, the wild cloud shots were taken with my new 10-22 mm lens. It is a fun lens! I have not bought any filters yet. Still trying to figure out just what I need to try to save costs. Hope you enjoy the game also :)

Amy:

Sigh. So lovely!
Are you done with school yet? Any travel plans for the summer?

Amy, yes :) We got out right before Memorial Day this year and go back July 27th. No travel plans for me, but Hawaii is not a bad place to be stuck :)

Oh, very pretty! I can see why it's so well known and popular. Really fabulous photos - thanks!

Excellent shots. Ohhh.. I like the lens. And thank you so much for posting pictures of what the bay looks like in summer - so calm compared to December! And I'm glad you got a picture of the rocks. I think that is where we were sitting. :)

Gorgeous - I can see why people love Hawaii so much.

Thank everyone :) It really is a beautiful beach.

Marta, It really is a fun lens. Still trying to learn how to take photos with it since they look so different once I get home and download them on the computer. The North Shore definitely is like night and day between the summer and winter months. I can't believe you were sitting on those rocks!
