The Big Hawaiian Island, Photos Part 2

Posted in friends, landscape, life, photography, travel by amoslanka on April 27, 2009

While in Hawaii a few weeks ago, I made a one day jump over to the big island. My great friends from Hood River, Blaine and Bethany were there for a few weeks after having shot a wedding. Naturally, I had to spend at least a day with them (on an island other than the people-packed Oahu) enjoying a day with the most adventurous people I know. Here are a few photos from the day, which had started off with Kona coffee, snorkeling off a lava beach, and later, journeying to the southern most point in the US and making a loop up to Kilaeua to see the lava glowing in the night. I’ll have more photos to share in a few days as I (slowly) get them edited, so please be a dear and check back soon.

As I think I mentioned in an earlier post containing the panoramics of Hawaii, the Southern part of the big island is covered in incredibly green rolling hills. You can’t see them in these photos, (actually I was standing on one while I shot this) but the hills were also covered with black lava rock fences. Such bold contrasting colors could never go unnoticed.¬†

One of many new friends I met on the island. I met many, but was jealous because Blaine and Beth had the chance to swim with them the evening before. We snorkeled in the morning, apparently the time they reserve for lazing on the beach.

My wide angle lens loves me dearly:

As mentioned, more to come, so please be patient with me. I also shot about 6 rolls of medium format on the islands so I will be posting some of those as well.

    In the best Napoleon Dynamite voice I can muster…”Luckyyyy.”

    In all seriousness, how big can you blow up that turtle picture? I’d love to have a print of that for my son’s room.

    Actually, I’d love to see all of your shots. I have some of Chris’ artwork up in my office, and I’d love to put some of yours up as well. As an admissions counselor, they give me place to daydream about other than Jersey, and are great conversation pieces.
