I absolutely love photographing the ocean. It mesmerizes me. I am in awe of its vastness, its diverse colors, the power and tenderness of its waves, its ability to sustain life, and just the beauty of it. Every day while visiting family in Hawaii, I did my own form of walking meditation on the beach where I tried to quiet my mind and just be with the waters and all the life within and around. I watched the surfers brave the waves. I listened to the local birds sing to one another. I smelled the salt in the air. I tried to feel each grain of sand between my toes.
And I photographed one of Mother Earth's sweetest gifts, the ocean.
