Happy 2012! Good grief: its been over a year since i last wrote in my blog! (Lots to catch up on and improve.) During the holiday we took a short hike to Kaena Point. We started from the West side this time. Very different scenery compared to the Mokuleia route but no less beautiful. The shoreline is much more rocky and dramatic (if that is the right word). I wanted to travel light so i left the photo gear at home and only carried my Galaxy Note. It is simply amazing to see what this thing can do in the field! I whole heartedly believe that the “death of the P&S camera” is well under way. The following panorama photos were also captured using the Galaxy Note. Its definitely not the best panorama capture tool i have used but i am impressed, considering its my “phone”!
I had no idea that we had these natural arches on Oahu. We used to fish on the West side a lot but i never took the time to survey the shoreline. Shame on me.
There were a lot of people out there. There were two Hawaiian Monk Seals in the middle of the tide pools as well. Thankfully everyone paid their respect and kept their distance. I’m sorry you can’t see them in my photos here: no telephoto lens on me. ;-)
Such an awesome place: I can’t wait to go back again!
I try not to do too much complaining about camera gearz. I know how hard it is to run a business and sometimes letting the customer have everything is a “bad” thing. BUT the new LEICA X1 tickled me (the right way) to evoke this response — seen in the image above. I created my perfect X1 in Photoshop CS3. If LEICA decides that they want my money — this is what I would want, in exchange for the healthy price. More info on the X1 can be found here.
