A photographic journal of images from O'ahu by Dana, Jamie and Kala! =)
Pictures are all taken during the course of my activities such as paddling, surfing, hiking, mountain biking, snorkeling, kayaking, stand-up paddling, rock climbing, archery, skeet shooting, and soon diving - due to my schedule, some postings are done in advanced and posted automatically by blogger on the dates specified. If you have any suggestions, comments, etc for photos you would like me to take, do not hesitate to let me know - enjoy and thanks for stoppin by - Live, Love, Laugh and share the ALOHA!
We were fixing the bicycle flat tire when it started to dizzle, then the rain drops got larger and we decided to bike into the rain from Diamond Head to Hawaii Kai. This was a moment capture right before we left =)
I called this image "Gandalf" because after we were looking over the photos, my friend remarked, it looks like Gandalf, so I guess it stuck - this is also not Temple Valley, but you can guess where 'GanDalf' is looking down towards. This photo was taken in the wee hours of the morning. The sun had not even broken above the horizon. The chill of the cold morning could surely freeze an islander. Some of us did jumping jacks to keep warm, others shivered and I had my nice winter ski jacket, gloves, and long sleeve undershirt! To get to the top, we started the hike at 3:30 AM =)
I've posted a picture of this scene before but just wanted to show how it looked this morning, even as its rainy and cold...
See that little fella sitting on the power line?
That guys always there every morning enjoying the sunrise - nor hither or yonder, rain or shine, cold or hot, he never misses a beat, starts every morning with a relaxin view of the ocean and orange hue of sunrise!
Here's hopin you all get the same great start to your day - if not in person, than just as close, a picture from ME!
If you look closely, you can c the rain fallin in the distance. That's Portlock (that mountain looking thing) on the left side of pic and that is Kahala town (with all those trees) on the bottom of the pic... and of course, the Pacific Ocean hahahahaha
