The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Tina.

More WET. Water again, as I don’t have any pictures of other liquids, save the coffee shots from Challenge #93.

Hawaii is WET. Pleasantly so. I love mid-air captures:

I haven’t gone fishing, but…

A long-wrecked freighter off the coast of Lanai, Hawaii. Battered by waves:

This snorkeler is all wet. Very wet. Emerging from the salted sea by Maui:

Finally, surf’s up! Good social distancing being practiced, long before it would be ‘de rigueur’:

Stay safe, be well.

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

    1. Haven’t found timeline yet, but internet sez: The two most prominent wrecks you see when visiting the area are World War II-era navy vessels that were intentionally grounded: the YOGN-42, a ferro-cement navy fuel barge (the first visible offshore wreck at Kaiolohia Bay), and the navy yard oiler YO-21 that’s on the western end 6 miles away at Awalua Bay. The YO-21 is one of the few remaining vessels that was present at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

      “Some people have confused the YOGN-42 with the Liberty ship, but it’s not a Liberty ship. It’s a WWII-era self-propelled fuel tanker, and it’s made out of steel and concrete,” says Tilburg. “It’s got a big concrete hull, so it’s pretty stout and pretty strong. That’s why it’s still there.”
