“My hope is that readers will feel calmness as they page through my book and read the quotes,” McEwan said. “I also want them to realize the life-changing power of the beauty all around.”

Jaw-dropping photos coupled with inspirational quotes are the main characters in a picturesque new book of popular Hawaiian spots. Each page offers the reminder that on the islands, clouds and sky seem to stretch for eternity.

In “Catch a Cloud: Hawaii,” by Janice McEwan, readers are provided page after page of photos showcasing views of Hawaii. From ocean views to sandy beaches to palm trees eclipsing the sun, each photo is captioned with a well-known inspirational quote and even some words of wisdom from the author.

“Hawaii is a beautiful, calming state,” McEwan said. “It’s important that people remember to see the beauty that is all around us and to soak it all in, even if it is just through photos.”

While recovering from an elbow injury, McEwan had to change her camera of choice. A lighter and more portable camera was key, which she found in her iPhone. After using it to capture the landscapes and seascapes of her island state, McEwan began to realize she should share her photography skills with everyone.

“My hope is that readers will feel calmness as they page through my book and read the quotes,” McEwan said. “I also want them to realize the life-changing power of the beauty all around.”
