Pure beauty. This city is so underrated, it has one of the most stunning skylines anywhere, yet no ones heard of it! Great HDR, Jai!

Too bad that Test Drive Unlimited on Xbox is the closest I've gotten to Hawaii. Oh well, one day

Here's another update


Bird!


Windward coast, Kaneohe bay


Note 'interstate' highway H-3, the most scenic highway in America


Ko'olau Range



Leeward coast, I finally took my camera to the beach with me




The beaches on this side are the best to run on at night, since you get the coolest sunsets


All pics taken in the last couple days

Cheers,
Jai

Jai - my God man, these are brilliant! Great use of the HDR technique as well - you're a pro!
I'm sure I've asked this before, but what camera are you using?

Hawaii has some fantastic skies, and you capture every bit of their essence and show them off brilliantly

Honolulu has the perfect combination between tropical weather and economic development. The result is an urban paradise! I liked the historical comments too!
Thanks por sharing these photos with us, Jai!

[...cont'd!]

So I met some chicks vacationing from Australia last week and me and my friends took them on a tour of Honolulu. Cause I had to go to work, only accompanied them to the scenic Nu'uanu Pali overlook and the site of the Old Pali Highway.

Old Pali Highway, now mostly overgrown


Looking toward Kane'ohe town


Looking toward Kapa'a Quarry and Marine Corps Base Hawaii


A view of the new and old Pali highway


One of the cuts in the peaks that the old highway straddles. Last time I was here, that little trickle was a raging torrent that engulfed the highway


Another new Pali Highway moneyshot. The rain can be seen starting to come over the Ko'olau range and highway H-3


Looking back toward the Nu'uanu Pali Tunnels of the new Pali Highway


The rain really started coming down at this point and I had to stow my camera for the rest of the hike. We ended up going down up under the new highway and followed the old Pali alignment and up the steps to the Likelike. By this point our Australian companions were pretty wet and miserable, so we didn't go further

Cheers,
Jai

It really is a Paradise, isn't it? I'd love to visit it some day, but it is a very, very long flight from where I live.

I was visiting my friend in Makakilo over the weekend. Managed to take some snaps of the sunrise over Honolulu...

Sunrise over distant Honolulu... note the destroyer steaming into Pearl Harbor. Sorry about the graniness... didn't have a tripod so I had to lean very still against a tree. I do like how the colors turned out from the exposure, though!


A view of the beautiful town of Kapolei, Oahu's 'Second City', from Pu'u Makakilo


A morning rainstorm coming over the Pali (range.) The towers you see are of Aiea, roughly equidistant between Kapolei/Makakilo on the southwest part of Oahu, and Honolulu on the southeast. The water is the west loch of Pearl Harbor



More pics to come later today or tomorrow

-Jai
