It Rains There But Not Here

One of the more interesting aspects of Hawaii’s micro-climates is that you can be standing on dry (and sometimes sunny) ground while watching it rain (and sometimes pour) just over “there”. This shot did a pretty good job of capturing that experience.  You’re dry and standing near a bay yet off on the not-too-distance you can clearly see rain clouds dumping a lot of water.  On days like this you can sit and watch the direction of the clouds to see if you’ll be getting wet soon or just witnessing nature’s power at work.
