I paddled along the coast of the Big Island. It was sunset and the light reflected off the volcanic rocks and Kiawe trees on top of the bluff. There was a light wind which caused minute matte textured ripples on the ocean’s surface. As I continued to paddle, I came upon smooth mirror-like glassy pockets where the water was undisturbed. I continued on, looking for these pockets and for the colors reflected in them, until I came upon one that captured the colors of the coast…the yellow of the trees, the orange of the bluffs, and the blue of the sky and clouds.
