With approaching winter, the snow birds will start heading to the Hawaiian islands. This is one of the favorite destinations: First a dawn shot and then a daylight shot.

Hi Selvin! Nice to see such lovely photos from you on this section of the forum.

WHAT? You guys have winter there in Hawaii? I thought it was tropical or subtropical (almost?)

Here autumn is arriving, or has arrived in Europe (at least Romania)... but still ok weather.

I like the subtle mood and colours of the first one. And the 2nd photo is great and vibrant, though the background mountain / clouds look a bit affected by heat haze maybe?

As I'm from Australia I love warm / bright weather!

Do I see a tourist's head and a beach chair above the hedge / bushes, where the waves break? :blah:

Thanks for sharing! Keep it up!

Paul

Wow, those are beautiful pics! I always wondered where all those snowbirds went in the winter!

Great as those pics are, BC still has the most amazing scenery on the planet. Come on over and have a look!:-)

Toshi43,

Thanks for your comments. Vancouver Canada is already on my list but you're making a great case for BC.

Aloha

Talk about paradise! I love the early morning shot. I think I could become a morning person living in a place that beautiful. Thanks for sharing your neighborhood.

I especially liked the dawn shot. The tranquil athmosphere and the colour of the lovable sky appealed to me. Deciding to leave bed early seems to have paid back Would you bother once again for some further dawn shots??
