Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
This is how Kawaihae Bay looked on a recent morning. Photographed from my neighbor's deck, this is the view looking south, toward the North Kona coast. The mountain visible in the background is Hualalai, one of the five volcanoes on Hawaii's Big Island. It is covered with a thin layer of haze from Kilauea, the volcano on the other side of the island that is erupting at present.
