This Hawaii vacation (cruise) was taken three years ago. My memories are still fresh. For those photos, I have redone the editing recently.
Hanauma Bay, when the exterior wall of a volcanic crater collapsed, opening it to the sea and thereby giving birth to O'ahu's most famous snorkeling destination. Even from the overlook, the horseshoe-shape bay is a beauty.

Hello Tiffany ,
Without the presence of the people on the beach , we couldn't have the scale . What a beautiful overlook ! The colors are fantastic .

un vero spettacolo, dalla miniatura non si capiva.
Straordinaria panoramica, molto profonda, si vede anche la curvatura dell'orizzonte.
Bellissimo pov, la presenza delle persone è essenziale per capire le dimensioni.

Spectacular panorama of that lovely beach. The colors and the atmosphere are amazing. Well taken.

Fine wide angle view of Hanauma Bay, for the inclusion of the entire bay and all in saturated colors, with enough clarity to show the presence of coral.
I first snorkeled Hawaii here, many moons ago, and now am sad that the coral is dead and huge crowds continue to damage this once pristine bay.
Thanks for sharing and reminding me of my past,

Un paysage de grande beauté ou les couleurs sont merveilleuses, attirantes, la prise en hauteur est sensationnelle, les personnes sont minuscule, et quel bonheur d'être là, magnifique

Interesting Adventure in Paradise for you
Very nice dominant point of view
I don't see anybody on the other side of the lagoon perhaps of the presence of sharks

WOW! What a wonderful and colourful bay!
A ancient volcanic crater that got an opening to the ocean.
I love the many different tones of green and blue in the water.
The many people add a human interest and also give a good sense of scale.
Best regards, Paul
