Snapshots of Big Island

28 April 2014

I experienced such a tremendous amount of natural beauty on Big Island. Here are a couple of my favorite shots:

Steam vents or cracks in the earth where rain water boils and comes up as steam

Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs
Sea turtles at Punalu'u black sand beach

Halemaumau crater is believed to be the home of Pele, goddess of volcanoes
The crater also holds Kilauea, the most active volcano in the world
