While we were in Hawaii I decided to take an evening stroll down Waikiki around 6:00pm. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to take a picture of, other than a picture of the beach. As I was walking along the beach I saw this rock boardwalk that was about 100 ft long and went out above the water. I walked out to see what kind of shots I could take. I adjusted my camera's exposure and took my first shot with a 16-50mm lens.
I decided I wanted to take a long exposure photo in order to smooth out the water, so I pulled my tripod out, adjusted my camera settings again and took the shot below.
After I took this shot, I stepped back onto a pile of rocks, in order to take a couple pictures of the rock boardwalk I was standing on.
Ocean waves would occasionally crash into the boardwalk and wash over top. I was kind of scared having all my equipment on the boardwalk...Nonetheless, it was totally worth it!
As people walked by I took a couple long exposure shots in order to blur them out. The picture above was my absolute favorite of the evening.
As the sun was about to go down, I turned my camera around, re-adjusted my camera exposure and took another long exposure shot.
About 15 minutes after I took this shot the sun was fully down, the sky darkened and the city lights turned on. I quickly turned back around and began capturing Diamond Head Mountain.
The shot above was taken around 7:15pm at about a 50mm camera length.
I then zoomed back out to 16mm and took the next shot below around 7:30pm in order to get the rock boardwalk again.
Honolulu's city lights were breathtakingly beautiful. I have seen pictures of city lights before, but to take them on your own is a very unique experience.
Around 8:30pm, the night sky was in full effect. I pulled out my 10-24mm lens, adjusted my exposure and took my last shot of Honolulu.
Honolulu, you will be missed. Until next time!
