Incredible lava formation...

Isn't this a incredible lava formation? It is in a area located about 20-30 south of Hilo town, the red coloring really draws the eye...especially as the surrounding lava is black/brown/blueish colored.

When I first saw this it reminded me so strongly of the Giants Causeway in Ireland, go here for a great web site about that formation.

This photo is a little grainy (?), because the light quality was very challenging...this formation is down inside a "blow hole" by the ocean and the shot had to be timed between wave surges. (you know its been a good day when you have to clean salt spots of your glasses!)

Have a great Weekend...I'll show you how we celebrate Memorial day in Hawaii tomorrow...

You really worked for this one! When I saw it on the portal, at first thought why would she take a photo of raw, cubed steak!

Ramblinground~ Thats priceless! But you know someone would take a picture of that...I have been known to take a quick shot of my lovely dinner out (on my camera phone) and send to my husband or kids that didn't get (or want) to join me (kinda thumbing my nose, lol!) I had missed the resemblance until you brought it up...

It does look like meat. I would only guess lava because of the name of your blog.

I have some good news:

The three baby robins are on their way to Meet the World. I miss them already. It was quite an emotional experience.
