Hawaii has so many interesting and unique sites. Where else can you see waterfalls cascading down a massive, dormant "shield" volcano? When it rains heavily here on Oahu, waterfalls form on the Ko'olau mountain range. These waterfalls dry up pretty quickly after it stops raining, and there's usually a heavy cloud cover shrouding the mountain tops in fog and mist. I got lucky with this shot -- it was raining, but I was able to capture the scene before my lens got too wet. (The hatchback of my Jeep helped keep things dry between attempts!)

Wikipedia has an interesting entry on the Ko'Olau mountain range: "It is not a mountain range in the normal sense, because it was formed as a single mountain called Koʻolau Volcano. What remains of Koʻolau is the western half of the original volcano that was destroyed in prehistoric times when the entire eastern half—including much of the summit caldera—slid cataclysmically into the Pacific Ocean. Remains of this ancient volcano lie as massive fragments strewn nearly 100 miles (160 km) over the ocean floor to the northeast of Oʻahu."

wow,.,.,!!so many waterfalls,..,.where is these.,,.?//
 
That is definitely a lucky shot there. Very impressive, Tom! Also, thanks for the information on Ko'Olau. :)
 
Dear Tom ... this world has so many nice areas and places ... but for how long ... this world has also so many problems ... polticy, moneysystem and religion can't solve all these problems ... but what can be the solution? I found "The Venus Project" and this concept RBE (Resource Based Economy) is the best way ... www.thevenusproject.com ... Your Ideas and Visions are welcome too ... and let us change it together ... what do you mean ??? Tell me your Thoughts ... Greets DJ Axel F. from Germany ;)
 
What a brilliant view. I usually try to identify pics before reading any attached text. This looked like the Amazon to me. I cant believe its a volcano

any chance you could provide a high resolution version?
 
Though I have Never Visited Hawaii Myself, I Would Jump at a Chance to Visit. You're post made me want to travel there in the Near Future Tom
 
I used to live in Waimanalo, and the waterfalls off the Ko'olau's after it rained were always my favorite sight :)
 
They're gorgeous, but we do have waterfalls coming off many shield volcanoes here in Oregon ...

Hey Tom I just read your pozt and I am also here in Oahu on Hickam AFB. I read your post to my wife and she was excited that you were out here, so she told me to hit you up and see if you wanted to hang out lol. I told her that you wouldnt hang with the peasants haha. If you arent busy one of these fine Hawaii days lets grab some coffee dude. You can tell me what its like to be famous and i can tell you what its like to be a troop; my treat. :-)
 
Wow, this is so amazing! #bucketlist

Seen this up close and personal and it is amazing...Unforgettable...
 
I hope my paradise will look like Hawaii. Have been there and can say for sure it is a paradise on Earth. The only mention that there are the most beautiful forests, ocean, sunsets, dreamworld for surfers, the only place on the globe without poisonous animals/insects, with the most relaxed, happy and down to earth people. I LOVE YOU, HAWAII

Must go to Hawaii to see it for myself! Spectacular! that Ko'olau mountain range looks enormous - looks like the vantage point you picked was ideal.
 
that is just beautiful, will put that on my 'bucket list'
 
Hey why won't myspace let me cancel my account? You guys never send me the email after going through all the steps
 
Hawaii is one beautiful place

So beautiful and breathtaking in person; my favorite place to be.

First impression? It was totally Photoshopped!
After staring at it a little more my jaw just dropped to the floor and I'm waiting for a doctor to fix it. Nice one :)
 
best post ever; I love the facts about the volcano wall sliding into the ocean~it must have produced quite the tidal wave. This pic is one of what I consider the rarest things to see on Oahu. Those Falls are really special. Thank you.
 
I love Hawaii. It's easily my favorite place to visit. Hopefully when it's time I can retire there. Favorite island for me is probably Maui.
 
Thanks Tom! And thanks again for Myspace.

My first duty station was Camp Smith, then later on down to Hickham. I'd go back to Hawaii so fast your grandparents' necks would snap from the shockwave.
 
Beautiful scenery!!! Hopefully I will visit some day soon.

Post the raw image next time I would love to see it without being photoshopped . 
 
Going there for our honeymoon in September. Can't wait. :-)
 
Nice catch.. Those waterfalls thin out very quickly like you mentioned... 
 
Absolutely beautiful. Makes you wonder what sort of spectacular sights exist on planets around the universe if our little blue dot has so many amazing ones.

Same here, also there was so much hacking going on. I haven't had that on FB. I miss myspace cause of the customise. Nice picture Tom, Thanks
 
u havnt seen the real hills to u go to eastern kentucky
 
Such a pretty picture. I am sure to be there in person is ten times better. I have always loved to visit places like this but I live in a beautiful state that I am proud to come home too!
 
Try the Sacred Pools on the east side of Maui, a few miles south of Hana...
 
I miss Magnum, TC, and Rick. Alright Higgins, you can come along, but you gotta ride in back of the ferrari.

Those shorts, they were just the best. I'm going to try to bring them back.
 
How exactly are there so many waterfalls from the same range? and does anyone know from how far away this picture was taken?

I especially love the detail of the cloud brushing the top of the mountain. Where did you take this shot from?
 
beyond beautiful!! i've never seen so many waterfalls...wow
 
Hi Tom,

Thank you for replying! I am going to look into both of those. I am
starting to get back into photography and cannot wait to be able to take
photo's and edit them like yours. Do you have any suggestions for an entry
level inexpensive camera that is able to attach different lenses? Thank you
again Tom,
 
I miss seeing those mountains from my grandparents house. Great photo!
 
i have been there twice and never seen anything like that its so AWESOME!!!

Nice shot Tom! I think you got the most waterfalls....I need a full frame lol.
 
They call them the Palis. I miss them so.. used to live there myself for several years. Aloha Hawaii. Hopefully I'll be back again, soon, one day! Hawaii Rocks. The mainland sucks.....at least compared to HI it does!:(
