In the winter, large waves break in portions of Haena Beach that are not protected by the coral reef. This one is over 10 feet tall from its base. They can get even larger during winter storms. After every shot, I had to run, as I planted the tripod right in the path of the waves to get the best shot. These waves looked best just before the break, as the light penetrated through them. The sand glistened and moved for just a second before drying up, so timing was important.
