Whole Lava Love

This is another take on a blue hour seascape, captured during our stay in Kona. I had been trying to catch the dying colors of the sky reflected in the stillness of a quiet tide pool, but waves kept surging over the rim, destroying its mirrored surface. After a few frustrating minutes, I decided to "go with the flow", so to speak, and waited for the next surge to come. With a bit of luck, I caught the foam just as it was swirling through the rocks. I like the way the lava seems to be almost lit by moonlight, creating an almost monochrome image of the scene, with only the hint of color glinting on the far horizon for contrast.
