A visit to Kalapana and a walk over lava to the cliff is one of the nice experiences offered to visitors of the Puna district (Big Island). Kalapana stands in a special dimension, where the elements are particularly close, not only earth, air and water, but also fire.
The honey from Kalapana Gold is packaged in sets of three small jars. That day they were Lehua, (the flower of the 'Ōhi'a tree, which I will show you in a future post), Macadamia Nut and Christmas Berry (an invasive plant).
It was late in the afternoon and it started to rain shortly after we got there, so I took only a few photos. Apart from the honey stand, I was intrigued by the colorful signs. Here are two of them:
It was actually the only day during our stay when we did not have a blue sky. I was happy to be there, in this place at the end of the road, where you feel pleasantly suspended, held by nature on the palm of her hand.
This is my submission to week #26 edition of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook. Savoring the weekly gallery is highly recommended: it's a very special mid-week treat.
The top photo was shot in color and then converted to light sepia.
This post contains the gallery of images submitted to the event.
