Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth, Or: Kilauea Panorama

Kilauea Panorama

This week’s challenge is all about depth. It reminds me of the afternoon I spent at Kilauea on the Big Island. It rained for about 90% of the time I was out there, but the skies cleared up long enough for a glimpse of the volcano’s sprawling range and depth. This was taken at the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself, Or: On Top Of Kohala

On Top Of Kohala

This week’s challenge is all about expressing yourself. When I’m on a trip, I have a knack for seeking out and trying to find the highest locations around. While Kohala certainly isn’t the highest place in Hawaii (I didn’t have the right vehicle to climb Mauna Kea), it still has some of the finest vista on the island. Fun fact: this was taken on the same highway as the picture I use for the blog’s banner.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity, Or: A Pacific Morning

A Pacific Morning

This week’s challenge calls for serenity, and it reminded me of a shot I took during a morning walk at the Kona Coast Resort in Hawaii.

A Moment In The Jungle

When visiting a famous landmark like Akaka Falls, it’s easy to overlook the smaller, more peaceful surroundings leading up to it.

At The Edge Of The World

For this week’s Odd Ball Challenge, I thought I’d post an iconic area from Puuhonua o Honaunau National Park, Hawaii.

You can stock up on a week’s worth of these for a cheap price at the Hilo Farmer’s Market…

Pololu Valley Lookout, Hawaii

Pololu Valley Lookout

You literally have to go to the end of the road – Highway 270, in this case – to see this part of the Big Island. Definitely worth the drive, though…

Honokohau Harbor, Hawaii

Honokohou Harbor, Hawaii

Because after spending all day on a road trip, there’s only one place to get a fresh marlin burger.

Weekly Photo Challenge: New, Or: Coffee Bean Bags

Coffee Bean Bags

This week’s challenge calls for something new, and fresh coffee beans came to mind. This is what happens after the beans have been picked; they’re put in sacks and hauled over to the processing machinery. Those are the small sacks, too; some of the sacks at Greenwell Farms were as tall as I was!
