Nikko Hendi Fine Art Photography GIVEAWAY.

happy monday...let's start this week off with a bang! i'm excited to introduce you to one of my periscope friends, Nikko Hendi, a talented fine art landscape photographer based out of southern california. Nikko started his professional career as an architect and lighting designer and recently set off on a journey to pursue his passion for photography.

Nikko takes us along on his photoshoots and location scouting via periscope giving us front row seats to the experience. while we are often surrounded by darkness...only left with the sound of crashing waves, he produces beautiful photos like these.

Nikko is generously giving four lucky readers a hand signed 12x18 print.

"his images are captured during the final minutes of the sun's farewell kiss on horizons and the invisible light trailing behind it, gently pulling the blanket of night sky."

(woods cove)

"in order for your image to invoke the emotion of the scene's soul, the photographer must reach deep within and feel the soul of the scene that is often misunderstood as violent."

(laguna - aliso beach)

"...Nikko has been able to render the hidden beauty of storms, captured into a dramatic, yet peaceful scene."

[oomph] adventures. kolekole pass.

last weekend we ventured just a few miles from home to this gem of a location. kolekole pass is located on a military base in central oahu. this hike is short and quick (15-20 minutes) with rewarding views of wai'anae valley. since the trail is only open on certain weekends, we took advantage and came back a second time. all of these photos were taken with my iphone6 using a hitcase waterproof/shockproof case and a trueLUX™ super wide angle lens.

do you have any hidden gems near your home?

first lookout facing north.
the trail isn't supposed to be open when there is live fire, but we heard live fire when we were there!
the steepest part of the trail, a couple short flights of stairs.
we took a wrong turn and ended up here...
...but later found the real spot!
day #2, late morning.
day #1, evening sunset.
