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.

These are a few panoramic shots I put together after last week’s trip to Hawaii. My blog was a bit dormant last week, not sure if I’d mentioned the trip in advance to any of you out there. I hope the photos I’ll be posting the next several days will make up for it. It was a grand ole’ time. These photos are all available on my Flickr, as will many more to come as I get around to editing.
Near Southpoint, Hawaii (big island) the pastures remind me of nothing short of Ireland. Not pictured here are the countless rock fences built from black volcanic rock. In case you were wondering, yes, Sigur Ros was on the iPod.
Would have preferred not being in Waikiki, but this sunset softened the blow a bit.

I’ve lately taken more of a dive back into film. I of course first got into photography doing film, not digital, and have over the last six months determined to find more simplicity. Also, acquiring a new camera (or two) was a bit of an encouragement in tandem. I’ve posted some additionals on my Flickr, do check them out. Or if you prefer the brevity, here are a few of my favorites from this winter:
