Pounders


I took this photo at "Pounders" beach on the drive around the north shore toward the windward side (east shore). The "fog" you see is actually caused when the wind hits the water, forcing little droplets of water into the air.

This is a good part of the island to visit on a hot day - because it has the effect of being a natural air conditioner. (And ... The view's not bad either.)

I like how big the Ko'olau mountains are in comparison to the homes. Good choice of scenery.

Hi ~tanty~
I took this photo in the middle of the day, and I'm not sure why the water turned out such dark blue. It could be beause of the water is quite deep here.

The waters are so blue and look very 'pounding' ;) I am so green from the beautiful views Kala and you have.

As to Championship:
Yes actually it was him, Zidane.
I don't know the real reasons why he might have done this, but in my opinion the Italian player has insulted him. Anyway, he was named the best player of the Championship

Wow! This is truly impressive... Looks unreal... just like in a movie, it looks like a CG landscape, it's amazing and so beautiful! But a little risky if you just want to swim right? ;-) Congratulations Dana for your amazing shots!

Those mountains are very impressive. Their marriage with the sea is a success in the shot : seems like the sea calms down the old volcano.
