Click to preview big island flowers photo book

big island flowers - showcases just some of the beautiful tropical flowers that grow and bloom on Hawaii's Big Island. Many are right around our house. I see them every morning when I am having my coffee and the morning newspaper on the lanai. Many mornings I run for the camera to catch a certain light.

I plan on this being the beginning of a series of 'little gems.'
