Many years ago, I spent a year living in the Hawaiian Islands with family. Three months were spent on the Big Island (Hawaii) on the Kona Coast, and the other nine months were spent on Oahu, living in a little town on the Windward Coast named Waimanalo. I am slowly scanning in more photos I took all those years ago, as this was long before I ever even heard of digital cameras.


Akaka Falls at Big Island

This was taken at Akaka Falls State Park on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Chinaman's Hat at Kaneohe

Chinaman's Hat (for obvious reasons) off of Kaneohe, Oahu.

Cove at Honokohau, Big Island

Honokohau Cove on the Kona Coast of Big Island. You have to clamber over the lava rocks to reach the little sandy cove. Carrying food for a picnic can make this trek slightly more problematic. Shoes are definitely recommended, unless the soles of your feet are too hard to feel anything.

Honolulu Skyline At Twilight

Downtown Honolulu, Oahu, at twilight. Since I don't like cities on general principles, this is the nicest I've ever seen Honolulu looking.

Pololu Valley, Big Island In The Pololu Valley, Big Island

This is the Pololu Valley on Waimea Coast of the Big Island. The road ends up top and there's a narrow, clay-covered trail leading down to the shoreline. I would have liked to spend more time here.

Rainbow at Kaneohe

Rainbow fragment off the coast of Kaneohe, Oahu, on a rainy day. 'Nuff said.

Sunset at Kailua-Kona, Big Island Sunset at Kailua-Kona, Big Island

Sunset off the coast of Kailua-Kona, Big Island. If you watch a Hawaiian sunset carefully, at the very instant the last bit of the sun slips below the horizon there's a small flash of green light. I don't remember the scientific explanation for the phenomenon, but it's interesting to see. I've never managed to capture that moment on film, myself. A camcorder would probably work best for that.

Valley Of The Temples at Kaneohe Valley Of The Temples at Kaneohe Buddha at the Valley Of The Temples, Kaneohe

These were taken at the Valley of the Temples in Kaneohe, Oahu. This is a lovely, serene place. The cemetaries here are separated by denomination, as I recall: Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, etc. It's a wonderful place to walk and relax.

The Windward Coast of Oahu

Somewhere on the Windward Coast of Oahu. (It's been a long time since I took the picture.)

The Windward Coast of Oahu

Near Laie on the Windward Coast of Oahu.
