Shot of the Day #68

Summer has come to an end here down-under, but it has been great! Fortunately I have taken a good amount of photographs over the summer holidays, which will keep me occupied with all the sorting and post-processing over the cooler months. During the holidays I was lucky enough to explore Hawai’i, while I was there I surfed the famous Waikiki and took over two thousand images. This photograph below was taken on the sandy shores of Kualoa Regional Park, it is a sacred well preserved part of the island of Oahu, and also the location for many hollywood blockbusters such as Jurassic Park, Pearl Harbor and Godzilla. This place would have to be my most favourite destination on Oahu, it is so untouched and preserved, great for photography! For this particular photo I had to get pretty close the the waves, kneeling down with knees and elbows in the sand trying to get this. After about ten shots my luck had run out and my shorts were soaked, but I think I got it?
