Mysterious in Oahu – a Photo Challenge

After pondering ‘mysterious’ for this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I found some photos from our recent trip to Oahu that will work. See what you think.

One morning I woke before sunrise to see the moon cast an eerie glow on the Ala Wai Harbor and Pacific Ocean. I was looking down from the 30th floor of our hotel in Waikiki – no balcony (thankfully) but the top of the large window opened, allowing me to zoom down from above.

The cruise ship looked mysterious to me, like a painting I might enter.

When the sun came up, I turned my eye toward Ala Moana Park and found a pool reflecting palm trees

while at the beach people looked like ants,

even more mysterious in black and white.

Later, on a drive up the windward coast we saw someone jump off the cliff with no fear –

and sail high above the ocean. How does that work? It’s a mystery to me!

Finally, what do you think of this sunset? It looks mysterious to me, taking me back to another time, perhaps 1940.

And that is all.

  1. Some of these are even spooky, but I love all of them! Especially that last one, definitely looks like it was from the past.

  2. I love the eerie, mysterious glow of the cruise ship, Susanne, and the B&W photo of the ants swimming in Waikiki πŸ˜‰ You had some great views from your hotel! Love that old fashioned sunset!

  3. My two favorites were the reflection of the trees in the water (always a great shot) and the illuminated boat on the water.

  4. Great selection, Susanne. I like the cruise ship – they’re always so illuminated all night! Also that last shot has a classic kind of feel.

  5. The ship does look ghostly. Perhaps it had sunk in the past and its spirit was still cruising, along with those who had perished on board? πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. I always enjoy spying on the world below from a high building, and I love your ant people! That last photo is beautiful πŸ˜€
