On the big island of Hawaii, there are several black sand beaches. This one, at the end of the road on the north side, has some pretty spectacular cliffs. For this moment, however, it was the beach beneath my feet that had captured my interest. The tide was just high enough to touch the rocks in the foreground. As the water receded, the depressions in the sand were revealed, and the reflections of the distant clouds lit up the beach a little further away. This is my contribution to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness this week, other bloggers black & white work can be seen there.
