Big Island in August

shot from the top of mauna kea (~14k feet above sea level),
some tips for those inspired: note you do not need 4x4! Signs and warnings every where about it. 2wd rental will work as long as the road is in good shape, test rental's brakes and low gear before attempting. Photo session went from sunset straight to night shots. Ignore the ranger whom will try to kick you out and scare you after the sun has set. It gets very very cold. I had checked bag carrying my winter gear. Temps around 10pm was in the low 30s. Camera will suffer from condensation due to temp fluctuation as you go from 14k to sea level (it will get wet if you use cheap gear, otherwise know how to mitigate the temp changes over time). Theres no where on earth where I can surf 81 degree water then bomb it up to 14k in 2hours.

Long exposure Kilauea Volcano

one of thousands waterfalls; not exactly the composition I wanted due to restricted access on private property.

sunrise
look to the left on the hill you can notice the VOG ( big island version of smog due to volcanic activity), on other islands seeing the milky way with your eyes is easy but not on the big island

Akaka Falls State Park, near Hilo
exposure of around 15 seconds, had to work with a fence (for good reason) made getting desired composition difficult
