TinyPNG – Shrink PNG Files

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Oahu Panoramas

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. […]

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.

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.

Lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis) are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction. Lenticular clouds can be separated into altocumulus standing lenticularis (ACSL), stratocumulus standing lenticular (SCSL), and cirrocumulus standing lenticular (CCSL). Due to their shape, they have been offered […]
