Na Mokulua Islands, Oahu

Na Mokulua, You and I

Just off Oahu’s windward coast near Kailua you’ll find Na Mokula–The Two Islands.

Made up of Moku Nui, “big island,” and Moku Iki, “small island,” the lonely pair make for a beautiful couple and fantastic photographs, like this stunning sunrise. To capture the duo with calm oceans means getting beating the winds, which means arriving predawn. This great shot catches the islands as they wake up to a glassy flat and morning pink hues.

Being so close to Kailua, the islands are frequented by kayakers, kiteboarders, boaters and surfers. The islands are off-limits however, as they are part of the Hawaii State Seabird Sactuary.

About Tuntland Photography

From the age of 12, I have had a camera in my hand. My love for photographic art, was first sparked by my father’s old Pentax K1000 (a fully manual, 35mm). It remained my instrument of choice for several years. Although I am yet a young artist, there have been a couple turning points in my career that have directed my path. Growing up without mainstream television, paved the way for a “hands on” approach to life. Mechanical ability and love for the outdoors, grew as a result. The first real turning point, was selling my hot rod, to purchase my first digital SLR. The second was a complete loss of sight in my dominant eye. It sounds cliché, but the phrase, “You don’t know what you have, until it’s gone” never rang more true. Thanks to the grace of God, and the support of those around me, I have 100% of my sight back.
