Mauka and Windward Showers

In New England, "Cowbark" says it can be just a matter of 15 minutes for the weather to change
In Grenoble, you get to see a photo from the driver's view
In Saarbruecken, Moonsoleil shows you the roads of her town
In Brookeville, Abraham Lincoln takes you for a rainy ride
and here, above, are five shot sequences I took while driving along the H-3 Freeway. You get to see a view of the roads from a drivers perspective as it goes from sunny to rainy back to sunny in a matter of minutes as I drive THROUGH the mountain. I'll post a video for you to see in a bit. - OK< scratch that - no video for now coz it did not focus well - will make another one when I go back next weekend =P

One of the most common weather forecasts on this island is "mauka and windward showers." Mauka means towards the mountain, and as you drive along the H-3 you sometimes get rain heading towards the Koo'olau mountains, as I am driving here, and it all seems to disappear when you drive away.

Interesting sequence. The weather on the coast looks much more tempting than the mountains.
I'm never quite at ease driving through these long tunnels...

I absolutely love driving down H-3 towards the coast. This sequence captures it really well.

MMM, there you go again, making me all nostalgic for the 'aina! I've always loved that, going from town to Kailua... the same thing happens when you go through the Pali... raining one side and sunny the other!

Mahalos, for the comments Kala! I would be ever so grateful of any suggestions you might have to make my blog more effective. Email me and advise!

Crazy weather, great view from the car! Funny that we can see your canoe. I guess that's so hawaian!

But I was so concentrated on landscapes, I can not get enough about them! Fine photographs and I went through every link:))

Have a happy, enjoyable May!
