We kinda, sorta had a plan for yesterday as it pertained to how we were going to occupy our second to last full day. It involved a serious amount of driving for what may have been little payoff. So, at literally the last minute, the snap decision was made to shift gears and spend some time in Kona. Specifically, Kona’s Old Airport Beach. After seeing some quick images of the location via Google Image Search,

Suffice it to say that it was totally the right move. The beach is set against the old Kona Airport runway, which is cool by itself, but what was so nice was the vast amount of rocky shoreline at our disposal… and there were maybe 15 people on the beach. We ended up spending about six hours shooting the coast from all different angles, right up through sunset (you can even seen the beautiful glow of sunset on the right part of the frame).

All in all, this has been a really fruitful and relaxing trip. Today is our last full day on the Big Island and we’re going to spend it visiting the local market and find some abandoned structures to shoot (w00t!) before heading back to the mainland tomorrow. I can wholeheartedly say that we’ll be back.
