I much prefer the empty space...though once in a while being among people is fun too.

Hi Girasoli, wow what a contrast. I love your take on the theme and these are some amazing photos. The colors are so rich! What beach are the second two photos?
Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous photos! I'll take either one just to be at the beach. This islander doesn’t like being landlocked!
Have a great weekend!

Amy, the first two were taken in Waikiki, down by Kapiolani Park across from the Zoo area (first photo almost looks like a zoo!). The second two were taken in the North Shore of Oahu. The first at a beach between Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach and the second at Waialua Beach Park.

Spectacular beaches... What I wouldn't give to be on one right now...

Touche! Love your interpretation ... The first time I visited Waikiki Beach, I thought -- This is Hawaii??? But then I visited Sunset Beach .. THIS is paradise. But Duke's is a fun place at the beach, no? You have a nice way of capturing the essence of the peacefulness of Hawaii. Mahalo. Have a great weekend, Menehune

Great shots for the theme. I love empty beaches and you photographed that so well. Also good shots with people but I'm partial to long sandy beaches with few people.

Crowded or non-crowded, the beach is always inviting!! :)

Great take on this theme. I love beach photos. The Beach is my very favorite place on earth!

I also prefer the non-crowded beaches over the crowded beaches but there are times now and then when a crowded beach still fits the bill. Thanks again everyone for your comments. I am spoiled here and I know it. I often take this beautiful place for granted. My photos are a great way of reminding me of the beauty here and how lucky I am when I forget or get wrapped up in every day life issues.
