Photographer's Note

A view of the Pacific Ocean from Diamond Head, in Oahu, Hawaii. I've captured a parasailor at right.

"Diamond Head is the name of a volcanic tuff cone on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu and known to Hawaiians as Lēʻahi, most likely from lae 'browridge, promontory' plus ʻahi 'tuna' because the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna's dorsal fin. It's English name was given by British sailors in the 19th century, who mistook calcite crystals embedded in the rock for diamonds."
