Diamond Head Gun Turret View

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

In the early 1900’s the United States Military installed artillery batteries on Diamond Head volcano on the southern end of the Hawaiian island of O’ahu. Today it is a state park that you can hike up into.

  • this one really grabbed me in the thumbnails. i really like the framing – makes the view seem more intense.
