Wave after Wave

North of Helo, on the Big Island of Hawaii, is a short scenic drive which includes Onomea Bay. If you follow the trail down into the bay you reach this tiny black stone beach. In the afternoon the waves pound into the beach one after the other after the other after the other, so frequently and so loud that you can hardly hear yourself think. I've never been truly afraid of water before but the forces at work in this little cove were awesome and intimidating.
