Big Island, Secret Garden


In the early part of March, I quietly escaped halfway around the globe to Hawaii on the big island of Kona. I traveled there as part of a yoga and meditation retreat. I have immense gratitude to my family for supporting me on this venture and for taking such good care of my son while I was away for a week.

It was an incredible experience to step away from my life for a bit and to find myself in a vastly different ecosystem with a lot of open-ended time. I took many photos from the trip, however, none truly capture the essence of this magical spot on lava rock and near the ocean. Some of my botanical photographs from the trip may resurface in a new studio project I have brewing in my mind.
