cloud coverage

Have you ever driven through a cloud?  The air up here is crisp and clean and the views are breathtaking.

Napua: translation: the flowers

a small breeze

Side of the road between Kona and Hilo.  

The drive from one town to the next added a few extra hours for the simple reason that whenever I'd see something picture worthy I'd turn around, pull over, or attempt to put to use that "stop on a dime" theory set out by car companies.  Needless to say, the breaks of my obnoxious Plymouth model Q worked very very well!  :)



442 feet of falling water... 

Going on a trip by yourself is something I feel like everyone should do.  It forces you to be more outgoing, you get to do and see really what only YOU want to do, and you can take your time getting there (I'm not even speaking metaphorically to the journey of life, here, but it does apply).  This trip to the Big Island was intoxicating and beautiful.

big island boud

A head clearing experience occurred on a solo mission to the Big Island which is not so secretly my favorite island.  One of the many perks of working for the inflight magazine, innov8, on go! Mokulele airlines means island hopping.

With lava rocks stretching from the road to the ocean (miles away) you get a sense of how powerful an active volcano really is.  Then you go from porous lava rocks to fields of green.
And roads that you need to down shift for.
Then with long stretches of road between towns you get a true sense of solitude.
And you begin to be amazed that there are snow covered roads and mountain tops,
and black sandy beaches, and then mai tai colored sunsets all in one beautiful place.

Does life get better than this?

Many thanks to go! and Nella Media Group.  More photos to come.

Sunset, North Shore 

Hawaii is good for more than surf, exotic television locales, or a family vacation.  I try to celebrate the little things that make Hawaii unique and special, like sunsets.  And that moment where the sun is blasting at you, you can barely see, and the light around you is soft, kind of like this photo.

A picnic bench overlooking Ke'iki beach, is calling my name.  I love Hawaii.

On a sunny day in Honolulu

Atop Diamond head with Ehren.  Honolulu is Hawaii's busiest city.  It's filled with a great spectrum of people like any other city.  What makes us special?  Aloha spirit.  That same friendliness that you can feel when someone lets you into traffic, says "howzit" when you walk by, or simply smiles at you without agenda.  Hawaii is amazing.

a little shade

A little refuge from the sun on the East Coast of Oahu.
