Pali Kilo I‘a Point

Island of O’ahu, Hawai’i

Pali Kilo I‘a Point (“fish watchers’ cliff”) were places where spotters would stand and direct off-shore fishermen in their canoes with their surround nets to schools of fish. Pali Kilo I‘a Point, the beach area was known to fishermen as Lā‘ie Malo‘o Beach (Lā‘ie Beach Park), but since around 1955 it has been called Pounders Beach for the off-shore break that makes these good waves for body surfing.

One of my favorite photographs. The lava looks like a wave. The ocean crashing againsnt the lava. The red hues of sunrise. It smacks of the chaos of a lava flow, the creation of new earth. Raw and powerful. A reminder of nature’s awesome beauty.
