Snowy Mauna Kea on a Cloudy Day

Mauna Kea

Mauna Kea
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

I've been going through some older photos, and I came across this shot of Mauna Kea, taken in the winter of 2004.  Mauna Kea, which is the tallest mountain on Hawaii's Big Island, has a snow cap throughout the winter every year.  'Mauna Kea' means 'white mountain' in the Hawaiian language.  This photo of the big white mountain was taken over my backyard hedge with a point-and-shoot camera.

It's so pretty to see the snow and the blooms at the same time. Even on a cloudy day Hawaii is most beautiful!

@ Kathy - We love the contrast of the flowers near sea level and the snow cap on the mountain, too.

Ooooh! That is so pretty! What a contrast, not only the colors but those flowers before the snow. Beautiful shot.
