[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Island of O`ahu of Hawaiian Archipelago - the east shore seen frm the top of the ,,pali,, (the lush, wind swept polynesian large cliffs).
It was the last thing I expected to find on the top of a cliff the size of mountain in Hawaiian shore : cactus , a plant that we all know it to be live in arid and dry environment here in the middle of some of the wettest spots on Earth was just flourishing !

Your cactuses are wonderful. Looking at your picture my garden on a window-sill looks poorly :-(((

Good shot, great colours. But the sea isn't flat...

Great view of the island, and you did well to notice the strangeness of seeing cacti on Hawaii. I imagine that this also demonstrates the problems the islands face, though, of introduction of foreign species.

Nice shot! Beautiful image, the bright colours are fantastic, great photo, excellent work!
and many thanks for sharing!
I like so much!
The composition gear up for a very fine result.
this one is the best for me
