Hawaii, Oh How I ♥ You

Evan’s work often brings him to the big island of Hawaii.  The Big Island is home to two of the world’s largest telescopes, the Keck telescopes.  I know.  What a pain, right?  Having to travel to Hawaii on business.  Life sure is hard.

A few months ago, I tagged along for the first time.  I’d been to Maui over 15 years ago but never to the Big Island.  A rainbow—double-rainbow even, although you can barely see the second one—greeted us the day we arrived.

The next morning, we found a friend.

Isn’t she cute?  (I’m going to assume it’s a she.)

On a kayaking trip, we found a small group of dolphins.  Check out the cute dolphin snouts poking out of the water.

I’ve had lots of snow cones, but this was the largest snow cone I’d ever had in my life.  It was gargantuan!  Bigger than our heads!  Passion fruit, guava, and mango.  Yum.

A crater.

The volcano is active, and at night we walked down a trail just outside of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to look at the lava, which wasn’t visible during the daytime.

John - You bring out the color so well. I also like the details, like the dew on the red plant.June 7, 2010 – 4:18 pm

Gerry - Love the volcano shot. I tried a tripod and slow shutter but got total darkness. Wish I had your talent! And if you can capture a gecko smiling, you have to be an awesome photographer!May 30, 2010 – 7:28 pm

Jenna - The Geico lizard had better watch out. This guy seems to be job-searching with that cute mug.May 30, 2010 – 7:25 pm

Lou - I tried to photograph that gecko (OK, maybe its cousin) but my photos don’t look anything like yours! My guy wouldn’t stop and pose. How do you do that?May 30, 2010 – 7:24 pm

Eva - The night volcano shot is really incredible and dramatic. Wish I could see more of them. How close were you to the volcano? How safe or stable is the ground nearby?May 26, 2010 – 10:59 pm

Kim - I really love the photos of the lizard (is she real and how big is she?). The colors are stunning. The way you’ve framed these shots is perfect. Hope that soon Evan will ask you to take photos of stars to help his research!May 26, 2010 – 10:56 pm

Larry - Your photos are absolutely stunning! National Geographic doesn’t do any better.May 26, 2010 – 2:37 pm

Marci - A double rainbow when you arrived….well, can only mean one thing…YES, you HAVE arrived!! I love the gecko peeking out at you smiling. I especially love the night shot of the volcano lava spewing and the waterfall was very lovely. I haven’t been to Hawaii…and now I really want to GO!!! We should all be so lucky to have to work there!May 25, 2010 – 7:23 pm

Chi - Good to know you both survived the earth-sized snow cone. AND the suspiciously shark-looking dolphins in the water! My favorite by far is the gecko with the attitude, staring you in the eye. Beautiful colors!May 21, 2010 – 4:31 pm

Mike P - The gecko (I think?) is cute, but the red marks on it make me think it’s some sort of mutant ninja gecko preparing for battle. Be wary, Truc… be wary…May 21, 2010 – 3:40 pm

Evan - Wow, great shots! It’s wonderful to have a talented photographer along to document my very important scientific research of beaches and sunsets and beautiful scenery.May 21, 2010 – 9:13 am
