Photo Of The Day : “The Swamps Of Hawaii”

This scene struck me as one of those classic scenes you see in your head when you think of Hawaii. Yet another scene from the beautiful Waimea Falls in the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawaii.

Photo Of The Day : “Hawaiian Hibiscus”

Knowing that I was only going be in Hawaii for 72 hours, I had this grand vision of waking up in the morning, going straight out to the beach, setting up shop, drinking margaritas, mai thais, and beers all day and lighting a bonfire at night and not moving until it was time to go to bed. Or just sleep on the beach. Why not? Well imagine my shock and disappointment when it rained about 66 of the 72 hours I was there! But what started as disappointment quickly turned into a sense of gratefullness, as we may not have gone to the beautiful Waimea Falls. This park is filled with everything a photographer could ask for. Birds, flowers, trees, rivers, waterfalls. It was paradise! This is a hibiscus, still wet from the last brief rainfall.

Photo Of The Day “Hawaiian Peacock”

I was lucky enough to take a last minute trip to the North Shore of O’ahu with my friend and his beautiful wife and kids, as well as his sister, her husband and their kids. Talk about a crash course in parenting! I am glad I got to spend this amazing few days with them before Mother’s day came upon us. Having no children of my own, it really gave me a better appreciation to what a parent has to go through on a daily basis. Happy Mother’s day!

Anyway, it wasn’t the tropical vacation I had necessarily envisioned. I dreamt of hot sun, warm sand, and cold Coronas. Instead I got mild temperatures, wet sand, and lots of STRONG rain. But hey, the Coronas were still cold! But without that rain and clouds, I don’t know if we would have made it to the beautiful Waimea Falls. This park consists of beautiful flowers and plants, gushing rivers, roaring waterfalls, and active wildlife. I was lucky enough to find a peacock who didn’t mind posing for the camera.
