Waimea Bay Lava Sunset

Waimea Bay Lava Sunset

Oahu’s north shore is home to many beautiful beaches, and in particular famous Waimea Bay at the mouth of Waimea Valley in Haleiwa.

Waimea Bay is known for its dramatically changing nature. In the summer, they bay is calm, offering relaxed swimming, quite walks on the beach, and cliff jumping from tall lava rocks. It shows a side of serenity and exudes a feeling of warmth. Then come the winter months. In the strong swells of winter, Waimea Bay transforms into the home of some of the biggest surfable waves on the planet. The shoreline disappears as thousands of tons of ocean water races up the beach only to be dragged back out to sea taking sand, road, and anything else in its way with it.

Today, in this picture, we see the inviting wonder of a Waimea Bay lava sunset.

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.
