While the rest of the island was being deluged by the storms this weekend, we decided to go on an excursion along the Mana Road. This is a road which skirts around the northeastern edge of Mauna Kea, between Waimea and the Mauna Kea Access Road. We went to Waimea, joined up with some friends and spent a few hours driving and exploring along the Mana Road.
We hadn’t been along the Mana Road before and we were keen to go and explore. Furthermore, despite the thunder and lightning that we had experienced the previous evening, the weather forecast had (incredibly) predicted that the skies over Waimea would be clear and sunny – yeah, right!
It was wet and grim, but I must admit that the mist and fog made for some atmospheric photography.
