This was taken in Hilo on the Big Island. The view is looking from the Queen Liliuokalani Park looking towards Mauna Kea mountain.

Beautiful setting. The picnicers in silhouette really make the shot. My son and his new wife just got transfer orders for Hawaii for three years. We're demanding an invitation, lol.

Thanks for your comments. If you do get an invitation you're right you won't want to miss this one.

Aloha

This is a beautiful scene. I just wish it wasn't so dark. The silhouetted picnicers are nice but the area in the center of the photo is too dark to make anything out.

Cal,

In this case I wasn't worried about the darkness at the center since my focal point was actually Mauna Kea rising up in the distance. Hilo town and the small islet were just peripheral.

Thanks for your comments.

I think the tree and picnicers in silhouette really makes this photo.
