The one thing I noticed right away while cruising around Hawaii was that the water looked so blue. When I was cruising the Inside Passage of Alaska the water looked more of a dark green. I’m not sure what the scientific explanation of this is I just thought it was cool. The above shot was while the sun was going down. The front part of the waves were orange lit by the sun while the back part was in the shadow and very blue.
This wave almost looks like it’s ice. Like one of the glaciers in Alaska. You can see how the blue in the water is really coming out.
Finally this from the fan tail of the ship. I always love standing back there and just watching the water churning out from beneath the ship. Here the blue of the water matched the blue in the sky. It took four days to go from LA to Hawaii and four to go back. So there was a lot of “nothing but water” to look at. And plenty of opportunity to get a shot like this.
