It was a hazy morning due to south winds and vog.  This is a kind of fog generated by the gasses coming out of the volcano on the big island.  So I decided to make a black and white.  I used a 30 second shutter speed at F11 to slow the water and give it a ghosty kind of feel.   In order to do this I used a 10 stop neutral density filter.  I just love going around the island and creating scenic landscapes.
