Mahalo to Karen Couturier for sharing her excellent sunset photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series.

I believe Karen’s photo was taken in Ko Olina on the southwest coast of Oahu. Ko Olina sunsets are spectacular.

I really like how Karen composed this photo with the sheltering palm branch hovering just above the view. Ah, what a relaxing sight.

Happy Aloha Friday!

* Huge waves up are in Hawaii’s forecast for today and Friday. Surf heights could reach 25 to 35 feet! It’s possible that these big waves may be high enough to hold the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau surfing competition. The last time wave conditions reached standards for this very special event were back in December, 2009. If the event is on, we’ll update this post and hopefully provide a link to watch it live.

Is it possible to visit all six Hawaiian Islands in a week? Yes, it is technically possible, though you won’t get to see much of each island. You will, however, get to see a lot of the airports as we will describe later. (The exception, of course, would be if you go on a cruise. In that case, you really only get a taste of the four major islands...

Wow, oh wow what a gorgeous sunset!

Mahalo nui loa to Doug Wean for sharing this stunning shot from Napili Bay on Maui.

I used to think that clouds near the horizon would ruin a sunset photo, but as Doug’s photo demonstrates, a cloudy sunset can be a blessing in disguise.

Happy Aloha Friday!
