Hawaiian Islands

Hawaii is a chain of over 20 islands, of which the main islands are Hawaii, Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and Molokai.

Hawaii's rugged slopes and abrupt changes in elevation are a result of the erosion of the volcanic surfaces, by moving water. As stream erosion has heavily dissected much of the lava surfaces, canyons lace many of the domes.

Sea cliffs cut by waves form a spectacular edge to parts of the islands and waterfalls several hundred meters high are not uncommon on the Hawaiian islands.

Hawaii's primary industry is tourism mainly due to the incredible beauty and year-round mild temperatures of the islands.

Kauai, sometimes called the 'Garden Isle' because of its lush tropical vegetation, is heavily eroded into a spectacular scenery of mountains, canyons, cliffs, and waterfalls. The floor of Waimea Canyon is more than 800m below the surface of the surrounding land.

As a result of this intense erosion, Kauai is particularly rugged; with the only lowlands formed as a thin coastal fringe.

The topography of the island also creates extreme variations in precipitation from one location to another. While Mount Waialeale receives 1,234cm of rain annually, making it one of the world's wettest spots, Waimea only receives about 50cm annually; yet these two sites on Kauai are only 25km apart.

It's this dramatic physical environment that attracts an increasing number of visitors to Kauai each year.

Experience Kauai:
Explore the scenic 'Garden Isle' of Kauai with international award-winning professional photographer and Kauai island resident, David Allio. Photography courses are open to all skill levels, film and digital users. Private instruction is also available.
