Along the Coast of Oahu

Strong Winds

When I was up here on the cliffside with Tom, he was commenting about how he enjoyed all the strong winds. I was surprised, because I don’t like it windy at all. I find the wind (after a certain speed) to be rather annoying. But he likes a strong wind blowing around him! I didn’t think anyone would like such a thing… so this was interesting to me.

Given the choice, I prefer still air or a slight breeze at 72 degrees (21 C)!

Daily Photo – Along the Coast of Oahu

It doesn’t take too long to drive around the edge of Oahu — maybe just a few hours or so. This is pretty convenient to quickly check the whole island for weather and lighting conditions. When there is interesting weather in one part, there is probably something quite different in another part of the island. And since there is scenic stuff everywhere, this makes photo-taking a pretty fun and convenient experience!

    Beautiful shot Trey!

  • I am for sure a strong wind kind of person, although it is a bit of a problem doing a long exposure shot on my flimsy tripod lol.

    Thanks for your kindly words God bless.

  • It entirely depends. On the beach strong winds with sand flying around are not my favorite, most certainly when using a camera. But … Eh, skip that, I don’t like strong winds. 😛

    Great shot, I zoomed in to the original size, because I wanted to see what this structure was in the top left. It only made me appreciate the picture more!


    A gorgeous shot!

  • I’m with Tom on this one…I love a good bit of wind; makes me feel like I’m on an adventure…when I was a teenager I grew my hair long just so it would blow about with much epic-ness in the wind….unfortunately it didn’t look nearly as good as I’d hoped 😉
