When a major cold front leaves a lot of heavy rain clouds behind it makes for some rather dramatic daybreaks. Sure, it is hard to catch the actual sun rising but it sure provides for some nice drama. It also creates an unusual contrast of the bright foaming surf spilling over dark lava with dark skies overhead.

And then, as the morning rainstorms leave the area and the sun tries to make it through to brighten everyone's mood up it creates this wonderful soft light diffused through the remaining clouds and water in the air.

Hawaii became the 50th state to join the United States on August 21, 1959. The capital city is Honolulu (Oahu). The highest point is Mauna Kea at 13,803 feet (4207 meters) (island of Hawaii, aka The Big Island), a dormant volcano last erupting 2460 BC. Mauna Kea is over 33,000 feet (10000 meters) tall, making it the world's tallest mountain measured from its base to the summit; the majority of which is under water. The highest point on Kauai is Kawakini Peak about a mile south of Mt. Waialeale, the volcano that originally built up the island.
