A couple of friends of mine wanted to go see the milky way at Makena Beach Sunday night. Makena Beach is also known as Big Beach because, well, it's big!
There is a smaller beach over a lava hill to the north that is known as little beach for the same obvious reasons.
We got there just before the sunset and relaxed on the beach and enjoyed the sunset and then it was off to work, photographing the milky way.
There are usually fire dancers at Little Beach on Sunday night and we had planned on taking photos of the fire dancers from the hill with the milky way in the background but we discovered the police had shut down the fire dancing so we didn't get to take that shot.
This shot was taken at the top of the hill that separates the two beaches and I painted the beach with a flashlight for a couple of seconds when the wave came in.
