This is actually from my first time at the top of the stairway to heaven. The best views on Oahu offer both vibrant/tropical and dark/moody sights. Actually just left of this view is the bright and vibrant beaches in all my other pictures.

This is a large wader which is a resident breeder in tropical southern Asiafrom India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, South-east Asia.
This species prefers gravel banks along rivers or large lakes, and also beaches. A single egg is laid in a bare scrape on the open shingle.
It is mainly nocturnal or crepuscular like other stone-curlews, but can frequently be seen foraging during the day, moving slowly and deliberately, with occasional short runs. It tends to be wary and flies off into the distance ahead of the observer, employing powerful, rather stiff wingbeats.
Seasons. Nothing stays the same, whether it is the weather or whether it is you or me. On this beautiful morning I find myself at Antelope Island in Utah. I came to capture a supermoon but that didn't work out. The clouds of morning hid this sight so I turned my attention to the eastern sky. And I wasn't disappointed. I watched as the show emerged, nature putting on a performance of epic proportions as it should be...the light of the first day of Spring.
