After visiting Hawaii in winter for the first time I realised how temperamental the weather can be. One second it was grey, windy and raining, the next the clouds would part and the light would feel as fresh and crisp as ever.

I’ve always described ethereal light as light just dancing around a scene and this particular day I couldn’t think of a better way to describe it. A thunderstorm that had been following us for a few days finally decided to leave, and the little pockets of light that appeared along the North Shore looked nothing short of magical. The surrounding dust made it look like the light was moving, weaving through the trees and dancing onto the road. I honestly don’t know if the word ethereal quite sums up just how serene this light actually was but here’s to hoping these photos can.
