Merry Christmas 2013 from Kalapana

The two photos were taken minutes apart in Kalapana Gardens December 23rd,

shortly after moonrise; Christmas Kalapana style :)
(You can click on either photo to open them both in a larger viewing window)
Moon above the ocean and one little lava house

In the double night rainbow photo you can also see the lava glow from three different eruptions. They are along the distant horizon left to right: Halema`uma`u Crater within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Pu`u O`o Crater eight miles north west of Kalapana Gardens, and the broader glow from molten lava surface flow breakouts three to four miles northeast of Pu`u O`o. 

Wishing you all the very best for our new year!!

~~ Aloha,


  1. Absolutely stunning, Leigh. Thanks so much for your sharing of what you see!

  2. Wow, I had no idea there were moonbows. I'm sure it's the best ever captured, a double. Thanks for sharing!
