This black cobblestone beach near Hana, Maui is right next to what is locally called the Venus Pool.  This is a really spectacular place with a pool right behind the beach.  Most people photograph the pool, but the cobblestones were too much to resist!  I did get a nice one of the pool which I may upload later.  The black rocks reflect virtually no light for the camera unless they are wet and shiny.  So I found a nice reflective spot and waited for the light on the rock and the cobblestones.  Once that happened, I waited for a nicely formed wave to break.
