Hawaii – The Pace of Formation | a short film

The most beautiful islands of Hawaii and the lava flowing creating new land. The closeness of a seemingly destructive part of nature turning into the extension of the islands through the hardening of the lava. Amazing visually. Awe striking. – j.kiley

Hawaii – The Pace of Formation

“Hawaii – The Pace of Formation” is a window into the creation of an island. The Kilauea Volcano’s continued flow of lava into the ocean is one of the few places in the world to provide a front row seat of an island’s formation. The Big Island is literally changing before your eyes. This vast island contains 8 out of 13 different climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems, making the Big Island one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world. To showcase its diversity, we wanted to slow things down and let its beauty speak for itself. Enjoy!

Alpine Adventure | a short film

A short film with a natural magnificence of stunning beauty. The story is the captivating nature one views. A magic castle suddenly appears and is gone. The bravery of a sole walking out on the water frozen from a cold winter giving the appearance of a looking glass. Sometimes we don’t need a written story. Nature contains more tales than writers can write. The ‘AWE’ factor fills all the frames for the eyes delight. I am partial to trains. One appears making me recall ‘The Orient Express’ of Agatha Christie fame. It is a delight ‘The Alpine Adventure’ – and a feast for the eyes.

A Reminder: OPEN TO FULL SCREEN for a Complete Immersion into viewing ‘Alpine Adventure’ and to better appreciate the film maker’s capturing of the fullness of the textures of nature in Winter. – j.kiley

honeysuckle flowering patch


A secret no one knows
A site hidden in plain sight
Cloaked honeysuckle
Rock wall covered – leaves on ground
Rain poured – I  laughed & stayed dry

It was my secret
Never to be discovered
Hiding in plain sight
Boogie men stared at this site
In laughter I rocked a patch
