Milky Way shots from Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach, Hawaii

I spent the last part of August on The Big Island of Hawaii.
The Big Island offers a variety of every environment
from luscious jungles to beaches, snow tipped mountains,
active volcano's, lava fields, grass lands and elevation changes
from sea level to 13,976ft/4000m in about a 90min drive.

I have always loved the skies, stars, galaxies, etc.
Here are a few images I really dug of the milky way:

Shot at aprx. 9000ft/2000m near the
Mauna Kea Visitors Center.

Red headlamps provided the foreground illumination.

Stay tuned for more images to come on other
sites while on the Big Island...
