E Komo Mai! Come, follow along with me on a journey off the beaten path through the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Explore the rough, jagged coastline, enjoy the tenderness of a roadside wildflower, hear the thunderous crashing of giant surf and watch the sunset over the ocean in a blink of eye. I'll take you under the waves to swim with sharks and we'll hike out onto the rocks to lay with monk seals. Waterfalls, rainbows, seashells and sunflowers ... lets share it all in my Hawaiian photo gallery. Nature photography with aloha.

All photographs are 8x10 matted prints. Matted photos of other sizes, up to 20 x 24 and including canvas giclees can also be ordered, please email me or call me.

As of October 2010, MonicaByTheShore Photography is proudly on display at Thomadro Art Gallery in the heart of Haleiwa Town, North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii! Canvas gicless in several sizes too!

BIG Waimea Morning Session
This was an absolutely gorgeous morning on the North Shore at Waimea Bay, Hawaii, with waves up to 30 feet, light winds and clear blue skies it was picture perfect for surf photo. The day soon turned to sadness ~just as I was editing this photo~ upon hearing of the death of World Champion surfer Andy Irons at the age of 32. Andy leaves his wife Lyndie, his family and his unborn baby due to be born in one month. Remembering Andy today, November 2, 2010, Aloha & Rest in Peace.

Hawaiian Monk Seal
I found this Hawaiian Monk Seal comfortably nestled in the rocks at the end of Kaena Point. He seemed to be so at peace, and so in 'his place'. He looked me over while I took his photo but he wasn't in the least bit annoyed that I was there. I kept a respectable distance of course, as I knew that this was his rock pile and I was just a polite guest aware not to wear out my welcome.
Hawaiian Monk Seal Refuge
Kaena Point is notorious for its dangerous current, giant waves and fierce winds but this tranquil rock refuge is the perfect place for this Hawaiian Monk Seal. Smooth boulders to lay upon, a turquoise blue, calm water ocean lagoon, the soothing Hawaiian sun shine, and all is well on the island for this seal. The promise of the protection of the lava rock out-cropping offers security from the thrashing North Shore breakers just beyond.
Kaena Point Rocky Shore
Kaena Point, North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii. Beautiful ocean colors, pristine waves, and a jagged lava rock coast that seems to be forged in 14k gold ~ a great day hike.
