Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

The Blow Holes of Homua is an amazing spot (national treasure park) where I would like to spend several days just enjoying, shouting and photographing! Exelerating!! The Blow Holes are on the island of Tongatapu in the nation of Tonga. Today was an excellent day at the Blow Holes except for all the rain, but the surf was up and the tide was high which made for some massive splashing as the large breakers hit the coral. Taken with a Canon 5D and a 28-135.

You can see a few videos from this place on You Tube if you are interested.

I have had a camera in my hand since the late sixties! Recently someone looked at a photo display I had in a coffee shop and got goose bumps. All I try to do is to capture various aspects of God’s amazing creation and let you also enjoy what I am seeing! If you get goose bumps, that’s great. But remember I only capture what he created. He creates, I capture, we enjoy.

  • Hi Sharon, Thanks for the feature. The blowholes of Homua are amazing. I wanted to go there every day, especially the day before cyclone Rene hit us head on. The blowholes extend for a few miles and when it is stormy, watch out and keep your camera gear out of harms way! We are now back in Kona for 14 months! Randy

    Congratulations on your “FEATURE”! I personally like the dark stormy sky. It adds drama and tension to the power of the waves breaking.
