  • Our Precious Reefs

    Pioneering undersea explorer, Dr. Sylvia Earle says that every breath of air we take comes from the sea. The ocean is important, because without it, we would not exist. “There’s plenty of water in the universe without life, but nowhere is there life without water.” And at 97% of the Earth’s water, the ocean is the life-support system for all creatures on our planet. That’s a pretty clear reason why we should care about and for our seas.

  • Kapalua Coastal Walk

    I didn’t plan it. Seriously. But I went on a bird walk in West Maui. In my defense, I thought it was a fitness walk. When will I accept that I am a birder? Am I in denial of age? Because, stereotypical or not, I always think of birders as, well, older. Or am I in denial of the feathery cute- and cuddly-ness of birds? I met Ben Auerbach at Kapalua Spa at the decent hour of 9:00 a.m. A couple from Wisconsin, a mother and daughter from Dallas, Texas and another couple from Central California joined us.

    Underwater photograph of reef fish courtesty of NOAAToday is Earth Day. This weekend, as usual, thousands of people will head to the beaches around the Hawaiian Islands. Mahaulepu on Kauai. Haleiwa Beach Park on Oahu. Kaanapali on Maui. Kahaluu Beach Park on Big Island.

  • 2010 Year in Pictures

    In 2010, I traveled around the main Hawaiian Islands, exploring Oahu, Maui, Big Island and, of course, the island on which I live--Kauai.  I always pack one of my various cameras when I travel, either my handy iPhone, portable Canon G9 or my SLR, a Canon 20D with a variety of lenses, including a fun and funky Lensbaby, walk-around 17-85mm, and a super-telephoto Tokina 75-400mm.  I take way more pictures than I ever post on this blog.  Here, in a review of 2010 in pictures, are many of those images that, for one reason or another, were never published.  Enjoy.
