Nestled between black lava cliffs and framed by tropical flora, Waianapanapa Beach provides dramatic contrasts and colorful surroundings. The black-sand beach was created by a lava flow several hundred years ago.

helo Tiffany ,
This is a superb dark sandy beach ,so typical of the volcanic islands . I like the composition , with the dark rocks in the FG and a very good balance between all the elemets . A pitty that you've cropped the top of the palm trees .

Fine beachside view of Waianapanapa, for the dark saturated beach offset by Nature's tropical plants reclaiming territory. Oftentimes the area has dare devils jumping from the rocks into the tumultous ocean.
And as usual, the floating clouds add dimension.

This beach was formed the same way I think the black sand ones I saw in Iceland, but the atmosphere is not the same at all. This one looks quiet, a good place to have sun or a bath, while the ones of Iceland look more wild and dangerous. Probably because of the green vegetation around the beach! A good POV, very well balanced composition with the horizon line on third and the rocks in FG to add depth. Good colours too.

The black volcanic-sand on the beach, has an extraordinary texture, I wonderr if walking bare-foot on it make a diff. feel.
The vegetation seem to grow from this volcanic residue, and looks lavish green.
Nice curved rocky shoreline, in good contrast.
