Hawaii Rusting Pier: Ipuka


A pier in Hawaii plays second fiddle to the staring role of the light coming in from all directions, creating a surreal scene pointing toward infinity. Aptly named by the photographer, ʻīpuka means, “door, gateway, or opening in the wall for the admission of light or air” in the Hawaiian language.

From the Photographer:

“The remnants of an old pier rusting away over time. Canon 5D MK II, 17-40 L.”

We love to stare into the posted tunnel gateway and wonder what is on the other side.
