I love taking long exposures in the day-time.  Here's a recent one from South Western, NC:

Some recent shots above my house from the Oahu Nu'uanu Pali Lookout, a major route from Honolulu to Kailua. It is also a critical historical battlefield site where all the 8 main Hawaiian Islands were 1st united under one king.
5D3, 24-70mmLii and last one 70-200mmLii.
It's about a 2000 ft sheer drop off the top and you can see 2 hikers near the top. I didn't see them when I took the shot, but only later in pp. Many people are lost, hurt, or die hiking in these mountains every year.

from Wikipedia:
Nuʻuanu Pali is a section of the windward cliff (pali in Hawaiian) of the Koʻolau mountain located at the head of Nuʻuanu Valley[1] on the island of Oʻahu. It has a panoramic view of the windward (northeast) coast of Oʻahu. The Pali Highway (Hawaii State Highway 61) connecting Kailua/Kāneʻohe with downtown Honolulu runs through the Nuʻuanu Pali Tunnels bored into the cliffside.The Nuʻuanu Pali has been a vital pass from ancient times to the present because it is a low, traversable section of the Koʻolau mountain range that connects the leeward side of the mountains, Honolulu to the windward side, Kailua and Kāneʻohe. The route drew settlers who formed villages in the area and populated Nuʻuanu Valley for a thousand years.

The Nuʻuanu Pali was the site of the Battle of Nuʻuanu, one of the bloodiest battles in Hawaiian history, in which Kamehameha I conquered the island of Oʻahu, bringing it under his rule. In 1795 Kamehameha I sailed from his home island of Hawaiʻi with an army of 10,000 warriors, including a handful of non-Hawaiian foreigners. After conquering the islands of Maui and Molokaʻi, he moved on to Oʻahu. The pivotal battle for the island occurred in Nuʻuanu Valley, where the defenders of Oʻahu, led by Kalanikūpule, were driven back up into the valley where they were trapped above the cliff. More than 400 of Kalanikūpule's soldiers were driven off the edge of the cliff to their deaths 1,000 feet below.

In 1845 the first road was built over the Nuʻuanu Pali to connect Windward Oʻahu with Honolulu. In 1898 this road was developed into a highway which during construction 800 skulls were found believed to be the remains of the warriors that fell to their deaths from the cliff above.[5] This road was later replaced by the Pali Highway and the Nuʻuanu Pali Tunnels in 1959 which is the route used today.

Lovely! I like the second shot.

Isn't it funny how you discover things in PP and never saw them in the viewfinder or in live view?

Thanks rpt and Click. I am lucky and count my blessings. But things are expensive here (like many other places in the world) and to get anywhere else, it's a 5-6 hour plane ride. Honolulu is the most isolated city in the world. ;)

What?  It's a short drive to Kailua, or Waimalu...I suppose Haleiwa or Kahuku are far at around an hour or so, give or take... ;D

And oh yeah, nice shots, I'm totally jealous!

The key is how you define "city". They only count as "city" one which has a population of > 250,000 or 500,000 (I forget which).

Just found this on Wikipedia: The most remote city in the world with a population in excess of 500,000 is Honolulu, United States. The nearest city of comparable size or greater is San Francisco, 3,841 km (2,387 mi) away.
For pop.>1,000,000 it's Auckland followed closely by Perth.   8)

Haha, I was just giving you a hard time.  ;)  Seriously considered moving to Oahu a year or so ago, love the place.
