Definitely not Ireland in the bottom photo! That top photo must be from the windward side with all that green, and the bottom photo is that Lanai?
Paul, that is the island of Moloka'i in the background. This is the view from our condo if you look off to the left a little from the lanai. I took this with the Sigma 150-500mm.
Aloha! you have made my day.
Love that second shot.
Seems the green is growing on a cap of thin top soil.Does anyone live back in those barren hills across the water?
Parker, there are quite a few people that live along the bottom edge near the ocean but I don't think there are too many that live up in the hills. We'll have to ask Val about that, she's more familiar with Moloka'i than I am.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our blog, we appreciate your comments!
