    What is your favorite location

    I was thinking that there are several locations here on the island of Oahu that I tend to go to quite often: Makapuu Point, Kaena Point and a Hawaiian Fish Pond near Kahana Bay (on the North Shore). Sometimes, I wonder if I go to them out of laziness or just because I like them a lot.

    I would like to know where your favorite locations are. I'm especially interested in locations in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. I'm planning on visiting them within the next year. I would also like to hear about locations elsewhere. I've never photographed in New England and would love to go there some day.

    Your thoughts,

    Stockholm, Sweden. First, architecture. Second, it is an archipelago of over 20 thousand islands. The archipelago is awesome. In many instances, one can find an isalnd all to onself. The ravages of winter winds make for some interesting rock textures. And in high summer, the sun never really sets.

    I work with a fellow from Stockholm who has a ariel photograph of Stockholm. You are right, there is a lot of water, and it seems like a beautiful city.

    One way or another I coming. There are a couple of places that I can't get out of my mind; Central Otago, Moeraki Boulders.

    If you ever come to Hawaii, let me know. Air New Zealand flys direct from Auckland to Honolulu.
