January started out with a bang!!! Just a few days after the new year rooled around I hopped a flight to the "Big Island" of Hawaii. Being my first visit to this tropical paradise, boy was I in for a surprize. The surprize came not only from the the beauty of the land, but from the quality of life that I sensed during my visit. To refrane from dragging this on and on I'll say that when I returned to California my eyes where open a lot wider then they had been in the past. This image depicts a small beach just outside of Kona. Full Moon, middle of the night, plams, ocean, stillness...Could one ask for much more?
