Eerie Beauty

Garden of the Gods, Lanai, Hawaii

The Garden of the Gods on Lanai is eerie and beautiful.  But when I took this photo I didn’t realize that it was going to be so eerie.  The bleached wood looks so like a skull making this sort of like a Georgia O’Keeffe painting.  Click on the image to see it full size to get the full effect.

  1. Look at the red dirt too. This pic almost could pass for another state altogether, not the typical “Hawaii” shot. You know I have never been to Lanai, ever? I need to rectify that, soon.

  2. I have never seen this side of Hawaii! It’s always like beaches and palm trees. Very eerie photo especially with the driftwood that totally looks like a skull!

  3. There is so much more. We took a hike on Lanai that almost felt like the forests in western Maryland or Upstate New York.

    1. Thanks! Hawaii is so much more than what most people see. With a wet side and a dry side and all the elevation even one island can be totally different from one place to another.

  4. Love this! You can feel the mana of the place coming from this picture. I love visiting sites like these, where you feel like you’re stepping back in time and that you’re somehow not alone.
