I like contrasts. The last photo I posted was of the effects of an August snowstorm. Today, I am back to Oahu, Hawaii and the tropics. The overall effect of seeing a tropical jungle or rainforest is the color green. It takes a while to differentiate the separate colors that really co-exist in the trees. Not all the colors are green. Here, the mountains are covered with clouds. The central range of mountains on Oahu capture a great deal of rain, rendering the west coast of the Island rather drier than the east coast.
