Waimanalo Bay

My son took this picture at about 4 pm, so it qualifies for one of the incredible pictures of sun coming in under the clouds in late afternoon. It has a 3-D quality about it and appears luminescent!

I can't think of anything much to say about it, except that the beach reminds me of what will happen with rising sea levels and the ocean warms up. At least the volcanic islands of Hawaii rise so steeply that they will still be around for a long while, but the beach might be gone before I get a chance to visit it.

Certainly the coral reef islands are in much greater danger of flooding, and the reefs themselves are bleaching as the sea gets warmer and the tiny animals that inhabit them can no longer live under those conditions,

But it's nicer to dream about lying on the beach!
