Flowers on Friday

One last flower photograph from my trip to Kona.

Bougainvillea were growing everywhere we went on the island. The colours are luminous, particularly when they are growing near a lava field. We saw orange, yellow and pale pink to magenta. Many grow on 'host' trees and can be 30 to 40 feet tall!

This photograph is at Waikoloa Resort, near our condo. I love the contrast in this image - the gray, brown and black of the hard lava, the softness of the grasses and the shocking pink of the bougainvillea.
