Skellig Michael – Hideout of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker August 20, 2018

On a recent trip to Ireland we were lucky enough to visit the island of Skellig Michael off the coast of Kerry. Skellig Island was used to film some scenes where it served as a filming location for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker’s hideaway planet. The weather was perfect and we had very calm seas on the day we visited. The ferry ride departed from a small village located on the ring of Kerry called Portmagee. Rising 714 feet above the…

TinyPNG – Shrink PNG Files September 19, 2014

Lets rejoice! I am no longer restricted by having to support “vintage” or “legacy” browsers (I am looking at you Internet Explorer). This means I am finally free to use transparent PNG files on all of my projects. I know a lot of developers have been using them for years but as one of my major clients was still supporting IE6, it was just not something I could use very often. Yeah sure, I could use the old IEPNG hack but…

The Sandbar in Kaneohe Bay April 7, 2014

The Sandbar in Kaneohe Bay from Christian Gehrke on Vimeo. We spent the day with friends who paddle for the Na Koa Lani crew (http://nakoalani.org/) in Kaneohe. We spent the morning enjoying the amazing sandbar that has formed in the Kaneohe Bay. What an amazing day. All the footage, both videos and still shots, were taken with the GoPro H3. The video was set at 120 frames per second at 720p HD quality.

Lanikai Ridge Hike Loop December 30, 2013

We recently decided to take a hike near our house and traveled up the back side of a ridge in Kailua that ended in Lanikai. We took a few photos that turned out really nice. I also created a quick video clip with the GoPro camera to capture some of the key points of the journey. All in all the Lanikai Ridge Hike Loop trail is a wonderful hike.

Oahu Panoramas November 18, 2013

It’s been a while since I posted anything here and I thought I would share some recent panoramas I have taken from the windward side of Oahu. I hope to get back into sharing content here again very soon. All photos were taken with an iphone 5 and using the default pano feature built into the iphone.

The Underwater Project by Mark Tipple June 21, 2013

I have seen these photos before but never knew the story behind them or who took them until now. Thanks to an article written in Wired Magazine by Alex Washburn I now know the full story and location. I remember seeing these and getting butterflies in my stomach as I remembered being back on Oahu, playing in the surf myself. The photos in The Underwater Project are not only beautiful but also unique in the way they convey the power…

Misty Morning on the Swilly June 8, 2013

I took this photo in the morning before the fog lifted off the Swilly. Warm misty mornings are rare in Donegal but when it happens, it’s really beautiful.

Benahavis Canyon in Marbella Spain May 1, 2013

I have a trip to Spain coming up and was looking around the area I am staying to find something fun to do and came across this canyon with lots of rocks and cliffs. It looks like an interesting place to spend the day.
