Number 9: The Big Island’s windy side

Upolu Point, Big Island, Hawaii

Driving leisurely around Hawaii’s Big Island is a good daytrip and an effective way of seeing the contrasts of north vs. south and west vs. east. The northern side of the island is windier, cloudier, and wetter, all giving way to the large green expanse of trees and grass. Near the small landing strip at Upolu Point, brisk onshore winds turn the active electricity-generating turbines standing tall among the wild horses running through the grass.

I made the photo above on 7 December 2009. This post appears on Fotoeins Wide at
