Wow. Best thread in a really long time. Amazing pictures. Lucky you it was such a beautiful day. You really seemed to shoot from every corner of the city!

I'd love to see some street shots from DT Honolulu. That should be your next thread!

Thank you MNiemann. Actually I didn't take all the pictures in one day....i have been taking pics for a while...trigered by a new SLR camera Street level pics to follow!

i_am_hydrogen thanks for noticing the urban/landscape combo. I tried to soften the highrise/architecture pictures with some beach and mountain shots I have taken on a few hikes I have done recently.

Fantastic pics!

You're lucky to take some shots from some of the residential condos downtown! Some amazing views to be had

God, how I envy you. Just buy me a home there and I'll move, pronto!!! I've actually been to Honolulu's airport; fine, little piece of work. My memory of Honolulu was actually viewing the thousands of lights upon Honolulu as the plane was descending. And of course, the weather was quite probably perfect, I don't seem to remember.

You mean you haven't been to the city of Honolulu on the island of Oahu because that's what the picture shows. Hawaii is not a city but is a vast archipelago state made out of eight main islands.

I call it the place where they film LOST

Nice pictures I have wondered about that river for a long time, how come does it carry so much water? Does it rain that much? In my island we don't have any

Thank you all for your wonderful and encouraging comments!! I'll post more pics as soon as we get to the second page so that the main page doesn't turn too heavy.
