I think I’m going to start doing a new tradition here, in my travels I’ve had some amazing shots that I love.  Images that remind me of why I shoot and really capture (no pun intended) my passion for photography.  Its images like these that make me want to ALWAYS carry my camera with me.  This one is shot on my way out to Hawaii over the pacific, probably about halfway out.  My favorite thing about heading west is how the sunsets last f-o-r-e-v-e-r.  Here are my settings: 5d mark 2, RAW, 1/20th, f / 7.0, 35mm 1.4L lens, ISO 800.  The reason i pushed it to 1/20th is because I wanted a tight as possible grain structure.

Want a copy of this shot?  I am also going to give away a signed 8×12 print of this shot. I will select from those who comment on this post at random within 2 weeks from today.  Enjoy!
