Hawaii Photo of the Week: Waves Crashing on Rocky Shoreline

Waves crashing on rocky shoreline What I love about this shot besides just its beauty is that you can actually get these kinds of views while sitting in your car in a parking lot.   There's a beach on Oahu that my wife and I go to from time to time where we just pull up

Hawaii Photo of the Week: Hana Highway Waterfall

That said, you'll see some of the most dramatic waterfalls of your life as you meander through this winding road.

Hawaii Photo of the Week: fast flowing lava river

A river of lava flowing on the Big Island Though this is a still photo, it really captures this fast moving lava flow from 2002 on the Big Island.  You can't get to these kinds of locations in person but this is a not-so-bad consolation. 2002 hawaii fast lava flow by 84175980@N00 is licensed

Hawaii Photo of the Week: Haleakala Crater

Haleakala Crater from the Visitors Center Overlook At first glance, this looks like an oil painting. Haleakala Crater is such an other-worldly place, it has to be seen in person to be believed.  So other-wordly in fact that NASA used this crater to train astronauts for their moon landing.   Enjoy! Yes, this is a

Remembering Dec 7 in Hawaii: Ford Island in Pearl Harbor

Historic Ford Island in Pearl Harbor The Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor is the one of the top visitor destinations and with good reason.  In this photo you can see white rectangular memorial that's directly above the sunken gravesite of the USS Arizona where the Japanese attacked and behind that is the USS Missouri where

Hawaii Photo of the Week: Kauai’s Napali Coastline

The Napali Coastline The arguably most beautiful place in the state of Hawaii is the Napali Coastline on Kauai.  I've hiked, kayaked, camped, and hovered over this place and it's my personal favorite.  This is an uncommon view of one section in that areaa. Chopper tour through Na Pali Coast Mainly pics from our

Hawaii Photo of the Week: Beach view from a cave

In a cave looking out at the beach This is one of those "only in Hawaii" kind of photos - you're sheltered inside this huge cave that's on the beach while at the same time given a stunning view of a beach that doesn't have a single person on it.   I recall places like this

Hawaii Photo of the Week: a Red Hawaiian Sunset

A Red Hawaiian Sunset Can you imagine what it must be like for the fisherman on this kayak?  This photo makes it easy to put yourself in their place. And if you can't be in the water, you could at least be standing on the shoreline having a drink and soaking it all in, right?

Hawaii Photo of the Week: Hot Lava on the Big Island

Getting a little too close to the lava I believe this practice of taking tour boats this close to the lava flows has been banned due to a tragic incident where people were hurt, if not killed due to a unpredictable lava explosion that occurred and hit passengers on the boat with red-hot rock. So

Hawaii Photo of the Week: Swimming in tidepools!

Swimming in awesome tidepools! This is a dangerous activity so only do this with someone that has done it before and knows the area and conditions.  That said, there are few things as totally cool as swimming in natural tidepools like this one. If you ever get the chance to do this safely, it's unforgettable.
