Diamond Head

Diamond Head

This is the basis of a photograph I took of the Diamond Head Mountain in Waikiki, Hawaii while I was on a boat on the Pacific Ocean. I have digitally created a new imprint of the mountain.

According to the Go Hawaii website, “Known as Leahi (brow of the tuna) in Hawaiian, the crater was named Diamond Head by 19th century British sailors who thought they discovered diamonds on the crater’s slopes. These “diamonds” were actually shiny calcite crystals that had no value.”

Fishing Boat

Fishing Boat

This is a fishing boat in the Vancouver Harbour in British Columbia near the Lion’s Gate Bridge in Stanley Park. It is being followed by a flock of birds because of all the fish they are catching.

I have put some nice blue effects on the image to make it more interesting than the gray scale image that it originally was.

Golden Gate Bridge 3

I took this photo as a comparison between a huge ocean liner carrier and the minimum height of the Golden Gate Bridge.  It is so high up that it seems like you could put to ocean liner ships one on top of the other.  You can also see some of the roughness of the water in the bay and you can imagine how much rougher it would be in the Pacific Ocean.  I also learned that Joseph Strauss was the main engineer and actually had to face opposition to the project in the first place.  Strauss had already designed and constructed over 400 drawbridges, mainly inland.
