Napili Bay Surf

Next up, a dreamy sunset scene from the regularly featured Keith Rajala (maclobster)

Napili Bay Surf

It is difficult to miss the dominant compositional theme of this image: the diagonal that leads from the bottom right into the beautiful colours of the top left. The scene is almost a diptych, divided along that axis, with the soft brown of sand on one side and the turbulent blue/white of windswept waves on the other.

This is by no means the only element worthy of mention. There is also the detailed texture within the sand – a woven pattern that catches the late sunlight to provide anchoring foreground interest. And let us not forget the fabulous palette of the sky, fired red on one side while the other is a soft blue. Too, we have a wonderfully subtle fan of spray breaking over the nearest rocks – I suspect seen even larger, this would be sufficiently detailed to steal the viewer’s attention.

Perfectly peaceful.
