Although unsafe for swimming, wild and beautiful Kaiolohia (Shipwreck Beach) on Lana'i remains a favorite stop of mine. It is a great spot to view sea turtles and other treasures. There is also a magnificent view of neighboring Molokai, which rises across the Kalohi Channel. The beach's eight-mile stretch of sand offers a great spot for walking and exploring.
The Kalohi Channel is known for having powerful currents and numerous reefs, and many ships have met their watery demise here, hence the name "Shipwreck Beach." Perhaps the most famous resident at Shipwreck Beach is the World War II Liberty Ship, whose rusted hulk still clings to a reef near the shore.

This work was created by using an old medium format film camera and Kodak Professional Plus-X 125 Black-and-White Film. Sadly, the 120mm film size is no longer being manufactured. The traditional negative is scanned on a drum scanner to create a 300 megabyte digital file which serves as a vehicle for the tonal balancing, lighting, and darkening that was formerly done in the darkroom. Once the aesthetic interpretation is realized in the computer and matched with the artist proof print created in the traditional "wet" darkroom, the image is then printed as a warmed toned archival pigment ink print. This piece is part of The Hawai'i Series.
