Over thirty years ago, before Cheryl and I got married, we went to Hawaii for a vacation together. Our hotel in Waikiki was right on the beach. One afternoon I shoot some beautiful pictures from our room balcony. The colors of blue in the water were gorgeous. The range of color was from deep violet to shimmering turquoise. I always wanted to paint this photograph, so with the weather as cold and rainy as it has been here, I decided it was a good time to visit Hawaii, again. Although it is not in person, this mini-vacation is relaxing and fun. Hope you enjoy..
