Winter Water

On the North Shore of Oahu, winter brings in massive waves, resulting in shore breaks of white Hawaiian snow. This frothy foam wraps itself up and around the sand, daring beach patrons to come closer. After moving to the islands from a climate that experienced all four seasons, for better or worse, I love that Hawaiian seasons indicate changes in wave height more than temperature. The icy blue tones of this frothy scene at sunset mixed with the pastel color changes in the cloud remind me of the warmth of Hawaiian winters mixed with the cool reality of the winters around the world.
