To avoid the crowds and explore rain forests, black sand beaches, and snow-covered peaks, head for the Big Island of Hawaii. My newsletter issue #022 - Hawaii: The Big Island directs you to the best places to photograph lava flows on Mauna Loa and waterfalls deep in the tropical jungles. A map pinpoints the best places for photography on the loop road around the island and the back roads that lead to remote beaches or into the mountains. Included are details on shooting the sunken cauldera in the Volcano area, the Hilo area, the Parker Ranch area, and the Kona area. Tropical botanical gardens and the trail to the Pololu Valley are revealed in this issue.
