Today we begin a series of photos taken on the Kamananui Hiking trail that starts in Moanalua Valley. One of the most enjoyable parts of hiking is to marvel at the beauty of nature. I’m always on the lookout for for a good photo opportunity in nature. Here is a beautiful white orchid in bloom.  From the looks of it even more flower will blossom in the near future. I often see orchids along Hawaii’s valley hikes so keep your eyes open and hopefully you will come across some too.

On Fridays the crowds gather at Magic Island for the Hilton Hawaiian Hotels fireworks show. This is a short fireworks show that starts usually around 7:45 - 8:00pm. I took this from the beach side that allowed me to get both the fireworks and the iconic Diamond Head in the same photo.  Truly a nice way to welcome summer to Hawaii.

The beach was a perfect place to be on the summer solstice weekend. Saturday was the day with the longest amount of time between sunrise and sunset. Here is a shot I took at Ala Moana Beach Park near sunset. I really liked the formation of clouds in the sky. On the far left you can also see some palm trees and a part of the iconic Diamond Head.
