Hi everyone, here’s @wags.photo and I’m taking over 220 Triathlon account during the Kona race week! In this shot I went inside a Lava Tube, a natural conduit formed by flowing lava which moves beneath the hardened surface of a lava flow. Tubes means the lava flow has ceased and the rock has cooled and left a long cave. Unique shot from the Big Island of Hawaii. Stay tuned this week for more shots from Hawaii! #triathlon #ironman #ironmanworldchampionships #kona #hawaii #photography #behindthescenes #220gram

Time for the final checks for bike check-in this Friday in Kona, and another excuse to ride again in the Lava Fields 😉 All the 2.400 athletes will be checking their bikes and gear throughout the day. I’m @wags.photo and I’m taking over @220triathlon this week in Hawaii. Less than 36 hours to race start! #triathlon #ironman #ironmanworldchampionships #kona #hawaii #photography #behindthescenes #220gram

The calm before the storm! All 2,400+ bikes rest at the Ironman World Championship transition area in Kona. I’m @wags.photo and I’m taking over the 220 Triathlon account for this week in Hawaii. This is one of my fave pre-race shots this year and my very last before race day. Stay tuned for more images and stories from the Big Island. #triathlon #ironman #ironmanworldchampionships #kona #hawaii #photography #behindthescenes #220gram
