Waimea Canyon

Waimea translates from the Hawaiian language to "red (fresh) water". Given the island's high iron-content red soil, it's easy to see how the river water would flow red. Waimea Canyon is often referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, and its resemblance is clear. Constantly changing weather conditions make each visit a unique experience with rain and sunshine, dazzling colors, striking contrasts, moving light, and often rainbows. The images below were taking from a variety of vantage points on the ground and in the air. Some of these were taken only moments apart yet display very different conditions.

Stereogram - click to enlarge; cross eyes to converge the two images to appear as three.
3-d effect will appear in the middle.
