Which do you prefer?

I came across this beautiful entrance to a ranch in Kauai, HI and had to grab this image. The contrast of the colorful blooming trees against the green background really caught my attention when I was passing by, as I am sure it would anyone.

I still love the color in the first image below, but I altered the same shot to create the second image below. It is monotone for the most part, but I found myself loving this version of the image too! I feel like a lot more of the vegetation detail and lines of the landscape are visible in this version. I think each version plays a role to different tastes and moods, so I wanted to share both with you and not deprive you of either ;)

For me, the color image is more lively and fun, pretty, gorgeous and full of life. Makes me happy looking at it. The monotone image is more contemplative, older, wiser – more of a slow down and introspect kind of feeling.

Which do you like better and why?




The Garden Isle

My wife and I recently visited Kauai, HI. We went there for our honeymoon 2 years ago and loved it so much that we went back. It is so beautiful there, I highly recommend it to anyone who has not been! They call it the “Garden Isle”  for a reason – 360 degrees of beautiful, raw nature.

While there I took my camera, of course, and attempted to capture they way I saw the island, the beauty. Below is a collection of those images. I singled out a few below and then put the rest in a gallery below these. I hope it gives you a sense of “Ahhh” :)








Awake and Alive

I was listening to Awake and Alive by Skillet today ad found it inspiring. I have heard it plenty of times before, but today the words resonated with some of the issues that are going on in my life. I wanted to share in case it resonates with any of you:

I’m at war with the world
And they try to pull me into the dark
I struggle to find my faith
As I’m slipping from your arms…

I’m awake, I’m alive
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it’s my time
I’ll do what I want ’cause this is my life

(Here, right now)
Right here, right now
Stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I’m awake, and I’m alive

Of course there are more lyrics, but these stood out to me. It feels victorious, ya know? Like – I am better than these things that have been draining me and I can rise above it and succeed!

These casual photos represent a feeling of peace or victory to me:

  This beach was only accessible by a boat or by a a good 2 hour hike along the Napoli coast in Kauai. It was secluded and perfectly serene – Well worth the hike!

  These flowers grow wild along the cliffs of Laguna Beach, CA. Natural Beauty in fine action!

  Flying in Kauai – no better feeling.

  One with the Ocean! I like to call this one Poseidon :)

  This just makes me smile. Off to side was a massive drop down the Napoli coast mountains. Beauty AND danger! ;)

We have what it takes to succeed!

See ya later
