Amber waves of … Pele's hair?

Amber waves of … Pele's hair?...

Detailed Description

Looking into the sun, as in this photo from the Ka‘ū Desert, Pele's hair has a golden sheen impossible to describe or photograph adequately. The scene often resembles a mowed field of "amber waves of grain." But, looking away from the sun, one sees almost nothing, certainly no color and not even much hair without close observation. USGS photo.
