A’ama Crab – Ki’ilae Hawaii

Dead A’ama are so colorful. Typically, a’ama are black, and blend in nicely with the surrounding lava. I found this guy at the end of the trail to Ki’ilae. I really need to start finding some human subjects. If you want to volunteer drop me an email.

Mountain Apples

Mountain Apples, Syzygium malaccense, also called ‘ohia ‘ai in Hawaiian, is an edible fruit with a red, white, or pink skin. It has a water flesh, similar to a pear. I found the flavor to be very subtle, with just a slight touch of sweetness.

Kohala Sunset

I had to make a drive up to Kamuela the other day, and found myself trying to get a good shot of this fabulous sunset on the drive back home. I happened to have just left the beach, when the sun came out from behind the clouds. I was actually standing in the parking lot […]


I watched a few tourists jump into the ocean at Ka Lae blowhole the other day. It was very fun to watch them psych each other up for jumping into the water.


Howzit! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I’ve just completed a move from Hoquiam to the island of Hawai’i. I’m in the process of updating the site, and hope to start accepting some sessions soon.
