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.

Kona Coffee, anyone?

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!

Weekly Photo Challenge: New, Or: Raw Kona Coffee Beans

Raw Kona Coffee Beans

This week’s challenge calls for something new, and there’s nothing quite like raw coffee beans. You ever wonder where some of your Starbucks and Peet’s Coffee come from? Greenwell Farms on the Big Island has you covered. And I can attest, the island’s fresh brews are way better than anything you can find in the mainland. I normally abstain from coffee, but their Autumn Harvest was ridiculously good!

Royal Kona Luau Fire Dance

Because nothing says the holidays like…a Hawaiian luau with a fire dancer? I took this at the Royal Kona Resort a few weeks back. Happy New Year, folks.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Warmth, Or: Sunset In Kona, Hawaii

Sunset In Kona, Hawaii

This week’s challenge calls for something warm (definitely needed here right now!), and I immediately thought of this awesome sunset I saw during the Royal Kona Luau on the Big Island.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle, Or: Kona Sunset Splash

Kona Sunset Splash

This week’s photo challenge calls for something twinkly, and the sunset I saw at the Royal Kona Luau instantly came to mind. I’ve got quite a few photos of this particular evening – you’ll see soon enough – but this one caught a wave at just the right moment.
