Diamond Head / by Michael Ng

Shooting a detailed picture of Diamond Head could be a challenge. Usually shot from afar with the skyline of Waikiki, the details of the crater are often washed out by the sun. Taken at sunrise, all you get is shadow as it rise from behind.  This shot was captured around 4pm from Kapiolani Regional Park right at the base. I found that getting this close kept the details and also provided a non-traditional view that many vistors never venture to see.
