Photograph by genius photog Trey Ratcliff.
What place on this earth is very like Hawaii, yet almost completely different? What place perfectly fulfills my In Search of Water quest for this year, the theme of most of my paintings and many of my sketches?
What is an island formed by volcanic activity, as the Hawaiian Islands were, making both among the youngest land masses on the planet? (We're talking geologic time here, folks, so Hawaii is 70 million years old, while Mystery Place is a mere babe in arms at 20 million years old.)
What is Night, metaphorically speaking, to Hawaii's Day?
Added: Guessed correctly by dear reader Rachel! We have a winner and we have credit lines for the two photos of.... Iceland!
Dear readers, please hurry and guess, because I've got to credit these two wonderfully gifted photographers, who've given me permission to reproduce their works here! As soon as the first person answers correctly (it's dead easy!), I'll publish credit lines. If I did it now, you could link to the source and that would be a give away. Speaking of give aways---I'll give a watercolor sketch from my trip to the first person who guesses correctly! You'll have to wait, but look how long I've had to wait to announce this trip, which will take place in late August!
