Liquid Power Panoramic Aluminum Print
Step into the ultimate liquid power of Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. This ocean picture features a stunning massive wave with a perfect barrel. The black and white or sepia tone aluminum print really sets off the beautiful foam and texture of the water. The subtle tones also fit into any home decor or contemporary pallet elegantly.
Aluminum wall art prints are made with a process of electrostatic heat transferring dyes onto aircraft grade aluminum which creates a very vibrant and unique piece of art. The photograph looks as though it may leap out at you! I call it HD TV for my photography. Each aluminum print is waterproof and has a UV clear coat to protect from fading. Each wall art print has a pre-mounted frame on the back which creates a floating effect on the wall. No additional framing is needed. Please treat as fine art. These pieces are not meant to be abused and must be handled with care. Care instructions are included. Watermarks will not appear on prints. Saw tooth hanger and frame color may vary. Allow 2 weeks after date of order to ensure I have time to make and ship the piece to you.
I took this wave picture entitled Liquid Power on The Day of the Eddie Big Wave Surf Invitational at Waimea Bay, Hawaii. One of the most honoring and grueling surf invitational competitions you could ever imagine! It is only held when the wave face heights are holding at a consistent 35 feet. The night before a 'possible' Eddie is held, the coordinators announce it. Madness ensues!!! The North Shore of Oahu is flooded with people hopeful that it will actually run. The beach and surrounding road is packed with thousands of people who camp out overnight waiting for the call. It becomes one big party. At sunrise the next morning, the coordinators go out on the beach and make the call if it's a go or no go. It is so rare for this competition to run, it's only happened in 2003, 2009, & 2016. One of the most amazing things about this competition is the surfers do not get towed into the waves! They have to hand paddle into them with their own power. Can you imagine paddling into a 35 foot wave, peering over the edge and taking the drop? Whew! That takes guts!
