I put myself behind the lens this past weekend for the Kona Underwater Shootout. 49 competitors, 48 hours to shoot, edit and submit the photos. I had so much fun making new friends, playing in the water (without a wetsuit and dive line 😊) and seeing all of the amazing photos and videos last night at the awards ceremony! Thank you @konafreediver @virginiahasthetravelbug @bopardau and @jeffmilisen for putting on a great way to show off our island! A few of my images placed 2nd and 3rd in the sealife catagory! So excited and very surprised. #konaunderwatershootout2018 #konahonudivers @kona_honu_divers #freediving #freedivephotography #freedivephoto #onebreath #waves #freedivergirl #girlswhofreedive #girlswhodive #dive #turtle @venturehawaii @hawaiiunchained #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained @water_of_our_world #oceanlife #saltlife #staysalty #mermaids #sealife

Vibrant mornings on Oahu. β›°πŸ’« Photo by: @darthkanaka

washed out

Just a short walk down from where you are now lies Mala Ramp. It is no secret, you can actually go right up to it yourself. It was demolished by a hurricane in the 80's, but it's youth is misleading. Stretching out into the distance, it seems to call to a time much older. I was taken by this on a particularly stormy night in the harbor. Perched behind my camera and tripod, careful to hold the shutter still for what felt like hours. I was so wrapped up, I didn't even notice the huge wave approaching that would knock myself and my camera back into the shore. As serendipity would have it, that huge wave cut my camera off just in time for the perfect exposure. #mala #bridge #longexposure

Still at a loss for words to describe the feelings that came over me when I first saw the glow and felt the powerful blasts from the eruptions. This was by far one of the most surreal experiences. My heart is heavy for the people of Puna.

Living in the mountains is rad, but I do miss quick access to quality waves. I’m headed to the North Shore of Oahu in a couple of days for a shoot and super excited to get in some paddle time! This shot is from a trip to the #CookIslands but it’s got me dreamin πŸ„ . . . . . #saltlife #staysalty #sealife #water_of_our_world #theglobewanderer #madeofocean #welivetoexplore #thewavecave #ic_water #livingonearth #offshore #seastheday #finditliveit #surf_shots #surfer #madeofocean #surfboard #thewavecave #surflife #livingonearth #surfphotography #thesearch #moment_oftheday #hawaiian #hawaiiunchained #hawaiilife #nakedhawaii #hawaiistagram #hawaiitag

Look around for a bit

Grateful for our random last minute trip to Kauai πŸŒΈπŸŒ€πŸ¦‹ Mahalo for letting me drive πŸš—πŸ’¨

This guy does an amazing job at always seeing the light in situations + has an amazing way of turning a difficult situation into an uplifting one no matter what. β € But, he's not perfect and there are days where the light seems to be shining a little less. On those days where he feels overwhelmed, I do something goofy, inspire him, pray with him, make him laugh and take that pressure off his shoulders just as he does for me on a regular basis. β € That's one of my favorite aspects of our relationship - the ability to uplift each other up when the other can't seem to find their light that day. β € But, this doesn't have to be just with your significant other. It can be to a friend, to a sister, to a neighbor, to a stranger on Instagram, for that matter. Light. Each. Other. Up. β € I've always loved the quote, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a different battle." β € Let's find a way to be contagious with our happiness, our joy, our love because sometimes, we just need one other person to light the way for us. β € πŸ“·: @mrslindseyroman 🌺
