The plan was go up the mountain… but they didn’t let us… so we went around.
They closed the mountain because of snow and ice, so we decided to take a small dirt road accessible by 4wd only.
This is the same road we played on, on a previous day. So thus we were back on the road.
Probably one of my favorite places on the island and for sure one of the least traveled areas of the island.
You’ll also see some pictures of the north east coast of the island where we went later in the day.
You’ll recognize it as the places with water, ocean, waterfalls etc.

yes that’s snow… yes it’s hawaii
Let’s just say that a rental jeep can go more places than a regular jeep can go.
So what’s the deal with the loner cow?
This is the Nene, the state bird of Hawaii.
They don’t fly, well at least they didn’t feel like flying away from me.
We had a shortened day of shooting.
But we made sure to get out and do a sunset.
We ended up in the southest part of the southest island.
In other words the southest part of the 50 states.
We enjoyed a big hole in the ground with mesmerizing water
And a fun spotted horse
And of course a favorite in Hawaii… more moving water.
So here we are at day 2
And we begin the post with a nice end of the day shot.
These types of trips you plan on picking a great spot for sunrise and sunset.
Well I think we got ourselves a nice sunset location.
There are a lot of rocky beaches, but this one was a nice sandy beach and I made it work.
Here’s some more stuff from the story of the second day.

This was only a few of the 1200+ pictures taken on day 2 (yesterday)
Cresting over the mountain, the unofficial west island sunrise.
Sunrise on the west side has some nice light but no color like I suppose you’d see if you were actually seeing the sunrise earlier in the morning.
Mid-morning holds some surprises on secluded beaches you get to with your 4wd vehicle
Mid-afternoon can be fun when clouds start participating a bit more.
Clouds block the sun but they’re just about to release their captive prisoner the sun, for that little gap between heaven and earth.
Can you spot where the sun is about to drop down below the cloud level?
Get your butt down in that water, get the camera low, not for the faint of heart, but it’ll make the great pictures.
Ahh the reflections!
Dang it people don’t even think of walking in the path of my picture…
…oh wait… now that I think about it… walk right in front of me.
That’s right, hold hands,… that’s cute!
Thanks for playing.
