Lighter Shades Of Pale1904 viewsWe were working the Sam Merrill Checkpoint in the AC100 100 Mile Endurance Run. During a break in the action we drove further up the Mount Lowe Motorway. This photo is looking West from the Mount Lowe Motorway towards Mount Lukens in the Angeles National Forest.

Waipi'o Valley1886 viewsTaken 4/2/06
Located on the Northeast side of the Big Island of Hawai’i, the Waipi’o Valley is a plush green area of the island that receives annual rainfall of over 200 inches per year. Access to the Valley Floor was over an exciting 4WD Road with a 25% Grade that drops almost 1000 feet in about a mile. It was well worth renting the Jeep Cherokee at the airport. Once at the bottom you are treated to a beautiful mile long Black Sand Beach.

Mauna Loa1858 viewsTaken 4/6/06
Rising gradually to approximately 13,679 feet above sea level, Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on our planet. This enormous volcano covers half of the Island of Hawai`i and by itself amounts to about 85 percent of all the other Hawaiian Islands combined. Mauna Loa is among Earth’s most active volcanoes, having erupted 33 times since its first well-documented historical eruption in 1843. Its most recent eruption was in 1984. This photo was taken from the 13, 796 foot Summit of Mauna Kea.

Pu' u O' o1856 viewsTaken 4/3/06
Kilauea is the world’s most active volcano. Once thought to be part of the Mauna Loa Volcano, it is now known to be a separate unique volcano. All the current activity on Kilauea is at the Pu’u O’o Vent. Lava flows from Pu’u O’o Vent into the ocean. This photo was taken at approximately 6:53 p.m. from a distance of about 2 miles. The red glow of molten lava can be seen as it flows into the ocean creating tall plumes of steam.

Grand Central Market in Downtown Los Angeles. I took this while experimenting with my first Digital Camera, an Olympus C-5050. I thought it was a beautiful medley of food, people and color.
