Parade of Lights

Woo hoo! Got some great night shots of Santa Barbara's annual Parade of Lights celebration. The boats, all decorated in their best luminous duds, paraded from the harbor down to East Beach and back. Afterwards, there was a short display of fireworks. Check out these amazing shots I was able to procure:

Today we have finally posted our images from the Queen Lili'oukalani Canoe Race in Kona, Hawai'i. This is the worlds largest canoe race, consisting of ocean-rigged, outrigger canoes and paddlers from all over the world. Different classes separate wooden, fiberglas and carbon boats.

The women's race is 22 miles from Kailua Pier to Honaunau Bay, and the men race the same boats back to Kailua. Each consists of over 100 boats.

The best image are posted to the Gallery section of our website (approx 70 images), with those and more posted to the Pro Lab Store. This gallery also contains several interesting panoramas.

Today we posted over 200 images to the Pro Lab Store from the 2007 Waikoloa Canoe Race in Hawaii. Some of the images are generic scenics, but most are of people paddling in the three different races: children's, women/mixed, and men's.


As always, please contact us directly if you wish to purchase an image larger than 8 x 10. We offer custom made prints up to gigantic poster sizes on archival papers and canvases.
