10-14-12 Kona Ironman

Aloha,

This was my 20th Ironman race. All as a spectator. So, I took only a few images before sunrise and the swim start and the first pros to exit the ocean.

There was a small south swell. Lucky for the main group of swimmers, a larger set of waves came in just before their mass start. Many could have been caught on the fringes of the outside breakers.

Anyone who did the race in 2004 or 2005, you can look for yourself in the galleries below. File numbers are the race numbers. Images are for sale as digital downloads for personal use only. Publishing requires licensing.

This year I wanted to get some shots with my Nikon D8oo.

A great example of what this camera can do is the image below showing the extreme crop of the middle window opening. Check out the amazing detail.

It’s a shot of the Kona Inn restaurant at morning twilight. 5:44am. Let me add that this is a great place to eat.
