The light on the Hawaiian Islands is gorgeous, but tends to be harsh and less suitable for photography when the weather is sunny and hot, and people tend to want to be unclothed and spend time on the beaches sunburning. We were fortunate to be in Maui for a period when 11 out of 12 days were overcast, foggy and/or raining, so I had lots of opportunities with excellent conditions for photography. My wife didn't quite see it that way, however. Some examples here and many more on my http://www.flickr.com/photos/56219672@N00/.

#3 is my favourite as well. Also, right now I hate you. Sorry, but I'm so sick of winter that the thought of someone else enjoying "not winter" is difficult to process.

Very nice, my favorite is no. 3. Also nice to know there are places without snow.

I am glad you had a nice holiday and got some good photo opportunities (although I can also sympathise with your wife's perspective). 3 & 4 for me -I like the lonely umbrella
