Description

Old timers claim that O‘ahu, known as the “Gathering Place” was once the most beautiful of all the Hawaiian Islands, abundantly offering in close proximity all the variations of natural beauty to be found elsewhere; that the colors were the most vibrant; the climates the most mild. Seen from the air, where the modern man-made environs are dwarfed by nature, it is easy to understand this reputation. From The Skies of Paradise: Aerial Images of O‘ahu captures all the beauty the island of O‘ahu has to offer, but few ever see, from the dramatic cliffs of the Ko‘olau mountain range to the vast plains of pineapple and sugarcane on the North Shore.
