Oahu is a paradise on earth that offers a wealth of natural beauty and stunning scenery for photography. As the third-largest Hawaiian island, it is home to some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world, including picturesque beaches, cascading waterfalls, and majestic mountains. 

Oahu is a true gem of the Pacific, offering some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. This Hawaiian island boasts an incredible diversity of landscapes, from golden beaches to lush forests, towering mountains to cascading waterfalls. It's no wonder why Oahu is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.

Whether you're looking for a quiet stretch of sand to relax on or an iconic surfing spot, Oahu has a beach for everyone. Waikiki Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world, with its turquoise waters and views of Diamond Head crater creating an unbeatable backdrop for photos. Other noteworthy beaches on Oahu include Lanikai Beach, Kailua Beach, and Sunset Beach.

I have spent quite a bit of time on Oahu, in an attempt to create a gallery of Landscape images that do this beautiful island justice. Thank you for taking the time to look through my Oahu landscape photographs, please check back often as I add to this collection.

"Jurassic Waters"

"Jurassic Waters" An ancient fish pond is estimated to be around a thousand years old. The native Hawaiians constructed this pond from the ocean, creating a spot for young fish to feed and grow. The brilliance in their engineering of this pond is shown in the small slats in the wall that the young fish slipped through. After feeding and growing the fish became too large for the small holes they entered the pond in and could not escape, making it easy fishing for the Hawaiian people. We hiked out to this spot before the sunrise, and were in awe as we watched the mountain catch the morning light. All of the sudden we saw huge ripples start coming towards us in a very still pond. As soon as the ripples got close enough we realized that a huge school of fish were coming right in front of us. It was a magical morning!
