Big Island Selection

Last week, I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding on the Kona side of Big Island. Dustin and I took advantage of the trip and extended our stay by two extra days for creative photo adventures. Big Island's surreal lava landscape, steep cliffs, and patches of green pasture were especially interesting to explore given the current direction of my work. Since we were on the Kona side, I made a point to scope out the windmill farm by Ka Lae Point. Throughout our visit, the vog was fairly thick which I tried to embrace while making pictures. I did encounter a few moments of clear air and light which I was thankful for. As I scouted for pictures, I was particularly interested in finding strange or unusual hints of human intervention on the landscape. I find myself looking for equal parts beauty and strangeness.
