The Art of Nature – Flower Art. Hawaiian Pua Lehua. This Pua Lehua flower is laughing in the face of adversity and bursting its way up through a crack in the solidified lava flow of Kilauea Iki crater in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It’s the official flower of the Big Island of Hawaii.
The Art of Nature – Natural Art. Nature truly is a master at creating works of art. This heart-shaped piece of lava lies peacefully radiating on the humongous Kilauea lava flow, near the town of Kalapana on Big Island (Hawaii).
Haleakala is the House of the Rising Sun – literally. The sunrises are of such an epic magnitude that they draw people to get up at ridiculous o’ clock at night to drive up its endless winding hairpin roads to the summit, braving dizzying steep drop-offs, in order to gawk over the ethereal beauty of its caldera when the sun slowly lights up and paints it in otherworldly colours.
The enigmatic Big Island of Hawaii, where flows of lava tumble down its rocky shores into the sea. I walked across the fields of fire from Kalapana to the Kilauea lava flows and stood utterly mesmerized looking upon the creation process of Earth itself. It is one of the most mindblowing things one could hope to see.
