Where the Land Meets the Sea

“This was shot at Waipio Valley on the Big Island of Hawaii last October. We hosted a friend from South Africa that was here to compete in the Ironman. After the event we got to play tourist and showed her this beautiful beach. Using a 35mm lens I had to get pretty close to the sand and rushing water to capture this image. The creamy white foam, the smooth black sand, the breaking wave in the background and the rounded black lava rock all come together to form this perfect little moment.” -Hans Klett
