Middle Earth by aFeinPhoto-com Middle Earth by aFeinPhoto-com
A shot from yesterday, 12.8.10, as a 20ft northerly swell came in. This is my first venture to 'my' wave spot. I have a narrow window to try and capture an image in my head and while this isnt it...I likey. Was one of the last shots before the sun went away for the eve. Heavy haze and an incoming front to the west created some interesting lighting. The waves were popping but most of them were more messy than pretty. Got lucky with some cool texture here.

The title might change to "Sauron's Eye"...you decide :P

Most wonderful, but would not have thought of "Middle Earth".

Again, this looks like it should be in a fantasy story (like the title hints at ;) ). Really spectacular.

Hey Aaron I got my metal print and I love it!!!! I just wish I would have gotten a larger size. It looks so good and I really love the frame and everything else about it. When i look at it I can almost hear the sound of that wave crashing against the rocks.
Thank you

Good effing grief. Amazing. Is this where that.....ummm...."Kaboom" (not sure on the title) shot was taken?

Either way, nice job. Next time I make it out to Kauai, you'll have to point this spot out to me. I'll pray for a good storm. Lol.
