15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A simple rock on the water

This has been a photo that I have not been able to recreate since I got it. I was up in Iao valley in Maui down in the small river on a nice sunny afternoon. I had been standing in the water taking pictures of rocks just after they hit the water, then I took this shot. It is a split second before the rock fully hit the water, it's as if it was only tapping the surface. I tried and tried to get this kind of picture again but could not. That is why I loved this photo, because I haven't been able to recreate it since.
