Big Waves

After a slippery hike down to Princeville's rocky coast in Kaua'i, I was treated to this spectacular view. This area is called Queen's Bath and consists of swimming pools of water surrounded by black lava rocks along the shoreline. Due to high winds, the surf was wild and high, generating large sprays of water as the waves pounded Queen's Bath. It was an amazing sight, but the power and height of the waves made you want to stay as far away from the cliffs as possible. Many visitors have been washed out to sea by standing to close to the edge when an unexpected wave washed over the rocks and lava pools. Don't worry; I took this photograph from a safe distance from these big waves.
