Vog
Here are some photos taken on Oahu's windward coast (He'eia State Park) this past Friday. There was a lot of vog (volcanic smog) in the air, that's why it looks so hazy. When the wind is blowing from the south (as was the case last Friday), the vog from the Big Island's Kilauea volcano gets blown to the Hawaiian islands to the north. The volcano spews more than 2,500 tons of sulfur dioxide and other toxic fumes into the atmosphere each day. Thanks to the predominant tradewinds (which are blowing from the northeast) most of these fumes are quickly blown out to sea.
