I spent two lovely weeks in Hawaii in 2010 over my 50th birthday month of December. Marie had suggested we take a trip to Hawaii as she'd always wanted to go there and felt it would be a great way to spend my birthday. This was my fourth trip to Hawaii having been there previously in 1984, 1996, and 1998. It was my first visit to the Island of Kauai though, which I found to be vey beautiful indeed. On Kauai we visited the famous Waimea Canyon and it afforded me some great image opportunities. I did a drive along the north shore of the island one morning and enjoyed the scenery along the beaches. We also visited the island of Maui and I ventured up the road to the summit of Haleakala to watch the sun rise. Hawaii is a paradise in the Pacific and I recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful U.S. destination to visit. I took my Canon 5D Mark II and 24-105 f/4.0 L lens, 70-200 f/2.8 L, and 24 f/1.4 L lenses. You can click on any screen to enlarge it to full screen.
