Shadows of palm trees on the white sandy beach of Kailua.   This is or “ironic” photo of they day since today is Lahaina Noon day on Oahu.  Lahaina Noon is a phenomenon where he sun is exactly overhead at high noon and Hawaii is the only place in the United States to experience this.  So go out at noon today and there should be no shadows.
