That's another wonderful photo, Larry! Beautiful tension in the atmosphere with the threatening clouds and the quiet, "harmless" sea, separated by the stripe of lovely Hawaiien vegetation. Very nice colours! The more I look at the photo, the more I love it. Liebi Grüess, May

Grüezi May. I am glad you like the "tension" as that was part of the reason I took the photo (plus it was nearing the last light before I left the island). It was a special place, as this is not a tourist beach, but one that the local people go to. Best regards, Larry

Hi Larry! It's exactly the place I would go to, where the locals are. :) Was "tension" the wrong word? But obviously you understood what I meant. ;) Kindest regards, May

Grüezi May. Just down the road there was a cloud burst, so the threat was there for different weather. I was glad this was the last place we decided to visit before our flight later that evening. It was a great place to bring our trip on the Island to a close there. Larry

I understand, Larry! It's the perfect place and atmosphere to keep a travel in good memory! :) I have added the Y*, which I forgot before. Do people win salt here? Because of the name and also the satellite photo, which shows white spots between the place you stood and Kaalani Road!

Grüezi, May. Hawaiians have evaporated ocean water in the lava rock barrier salt pond since the 1700's. There were several small evaporation ponds across the area when I visited the site, so people are still producing small quantities of salt there.

Thank you Larry, for the information. It's what I thought. I have seen similar "saltlakes" in France and Turkey. Härzlechi Grüess, May
