I'm an avid photographer from the Big Island of Hawaii. What started out as a hobby, has blossomed into a passion that will be with me for the rest of my life. Photography gives me the means to express myself and to others, the beauty I find on this island home through my eyes. Kick your shoes off, run your toes through the sand, and browse awhile...I hope you get a feel for the island life through my images. If you like what you see, leave me some feedback in my guestbook. If you would care to check out my gallery on Renderosity click on the banner below. I will be updating these pages as time allows so please check back often for new images. Thanks for dropping in and having a look around and I hope you enjoy your stay. Aloha!

Big Island young and still growing
The Big Island of Hawaii lives up to its name; at 95 miles long and 80 miles wide, it is much larger than the other three major islands combined. Indeed, it comprises over 63% of the land area of all the Hawaiian Islands. At a mere 450,000 to 800,000 years of age, it is also the youngest island and is still forming today because of Kilauea, the world's most active volcano. Unparalleled Majesty Big Island has some of the world's tallest mountains, deep valleys, plunging waterfalls, 266 miles of coastline, black sand beaches, astounding agricultural plantations, picture-perfect tropical waters … the list could just go on. It truly is a place of matchless beauty. Step into the Sky In the northeast, Mauna Kea, the "White Mountain," rears its head some 13,796 feet (4,205 m) above sea level, serving as an excellent platform for modern astronomical observatories. Mauna Loa, the "Long Mountain," isn't much shorter at 13,679 feet (4,169m). This mountain alone is 60 miles long and 30 wide and consists of lava described as "iron-hard," making it the densest and most massive mountain on earth. Both Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa are among the tallest mountains in the world.
