This red sand beach is just outside of Hana and is rather difficult to get to at high tide, especially in the dark before sunrise.  The old path was washed away by a landslide and the waves at high tide make it difficult to run across the beaches between waves.  But high tide is needed for the waves to wash over the rocks you see here.  I moved around until I positioned the sun in the corner to act as a spotlight on the rest of the scene.  The rocks really are that red and the red sand to the left is even more red.
