Sunday Stills Triangles

Sunday Stills: #Triangular Manifestation

“Triangles” is our theme this week for the Sunday Stills Photo Challenge. This Sunday I had looked forward to being back at our campground in the Sacramento Delta.

Blue July #Squares: Surf’s Up in Hilo

I caught these young surfers shredding waves on Hilo Bay last January. Three boys and one girl surf and boogie board on a warm winter’s day. It was a school holiday; the temps were warm and who wouldn’t surf if they could? Even more amazing was how they managed to dodge the large lava rock …
