Hawaiian Tree Bones: An Infrared Timelapse

Hawaii blogger, Ryan Ozawa, recently shared this video titled Hawaiian Tree Bones by photographer and filmmaker Gary Yost. The images in the video are indeed haunting and definitely worth a watch.

“Ancestor akua (spirits) embodied by Mamane tree bones. These trees are on Kohala mountain, the first volcano that rose from the seabed to create the Big Island of Hawaii.” -Gary Yost

Yost received special permission from Parker Ranch on the Big Island to shoot the video. The chilling soundtrack is a pre-European chant titled “Ku’u wahine i ka ua ‘Ulalena” by Charles Albert Manu’alkohanaiki’illili Boyd.
