Kawaihae Harbor and the Kohala Coast of Hawaii

Kawaihae, Hawaii

Kawaihae Harbor and Kohala Coast Resorts
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

After flying northward from Kona along the Kohala coast of Hawaii's Big Island, the aircraft began to turn east over the port of Kawaihae.  Although our position in relation to the bright morning sun made it difficult to get an optimal photo, the view was spectacular.  In the bottom left of this photo is the harbor at the port of Kawaihae.  Up the coast you can see the northernmost of the Kohala coast resorts, including the Mauna Kea, the Mauna Lani, and the Hapuna Beach Prince hotels, and Hapuna Beach State Park.  A minute later, we flew right over my house!

Another amazing shot. I really like the shimmer of the sun in the water.

Wonderful series of air shots. I'm amazed that you know what's what from the air.

Thank you both.

@ Becky - To be honest, I was having a hard time limiting the effects of the sun to 'shimmer' rather than flat out glare!

@ Tink - The areas in these photos are my home territories, so I know the lay of the land very well -- from the ground and from the air.

Amazing. I know I'd been behind in visiting some blogs but didn't realize how badly until I hit your blog today. At least I can catch up and have. Wonderful sky shots!
