Most of these photos are quite a bit larger
than displayed on this page and
can be enlarged to show more detail.




East Oahu






Coconut Island
U.H. Research Station, Kaneohe Bay





Lighthouse at Maka Pu'u






Pali at Waiamanalo
At 1380 ft., with a road up the backside to the summit, and facing directly into the NE Trade Winds this pali is a favorite stepping off point for hang-gliders. An ancient fish pond can be seen on the beach. The urban sprawl beyond is Hawaii Kai on the south side of the island. The cinder cone is Koko Crater.





Kaneohe Bay Marine Air Station
Streaks in the sunlit water, off the near end of the runway, show the near constant "down the runway" Trade Winds that make it like a 7,000 ft. aircraft carrier...





Kaaawa Valley
Directly below, in the ocean, is an area where there is a sandy bottom, it looks like a stream bed. That is where fresh water, a continuation of the streams, flowing from the island dilute the sea water, making it uninhabitable for coral. The Hershey Kiss in the bay beyond in Chinamanís Hat. The island in the far distance is Coconut Island.





Manana Island






Waikiki
From Ala Moana Beach to the rim of Diamond Head in the lower right.
