Four scuba divers slowly swimming out of a cove next to the Halona Blowhole at sunrise.

A slim rocky ridgeline runs from left to right moving away from the camera. A pillbox at a slightly higher elevation is in the distance next to a few threes. A drop-off towards the ocean below is to the right of the pillbox.
The end of the hike at Maili Point — passed the pink pillbox.

Waves softly crashing on the black rocks. A beach on the left leading to a peninsula of houses on the other side — a man is walking away from the camera a medium distance away. A cloudy mountain ridgeline in the far distance.
Gray and rainbow filled morning at Haleʻiwa Aliʻi Beach Park.

The trail following the ridgeline into the distance. A secondary mountain ridgeline in the distance far away. The sky is filled almost completely with clouds but the blue peaks through in some spots.
Taken a little ways after the second Lanikai pillbox.

A tree has fallen across the trail (from right to left). Leafless branches hang off the side of the trail with tons of greenery surrounding them.
Hiking up to the first peak on the Olomana Ridge trail.

An ocean view with black rocks interspersed next to the beach. A wave has just hit the outer rocks and water is shooting straight upwards on the right as remnants of the wave wash over the remaining rocks.
Visited Ka‘Ena Point — the westernmost point on Oahu.

Shadows from the trees lay across the pond on the Byodo-In Temple grounds. Early morning light filters through where it can — a walking trail on the other side.

Large tree roots cover the ground across the trail. A set of a few tall trees on the left and opening in the trees straight a head.
Part of the path up to Kuli'ou'ou Ridge — when you incorrectly think you're almost there.

Golden knee-high grass with a small opening leading to a dying tree about 50 feet away. The inner mountain walls of the valley off in the distance.
The valley inside of the Diamond Head State Monument.

A sandy trail leading to a portal canopy at the end of the pier. You can part of a seawall on the right. Open ocean and blue and purple sky filles the rest of the photo.
