Hilo Daily Image
16 September 2016
The brilliant epidendrums are blooming again. But it was very windy and thus hopeless. I already did red epidendrum in the wind, months ago.
Then I saw this fallen one, which wasn't going to be moving at all, so I got the close-up rig. In the camera's display I couldn't see the coloration of the gravel. I confess I've never looked closely at Yamada Brothers #58 gravel. Notice the colors, and also the inclusions. The gravel is crushed from local stone, presumably lava.
This is as good a place as any to announce that I'm putting the HDI on Instagram, every day. Probably not with as much verbiage though. Not surprisingly, the Instagram name is hilodailyimage and the hashtag is #hilodailyimage.
