Oahu, Hawaii 2015 Select Photos

Hello everyone. So a few of you that follow my Facebook Page or Instagram know that I traveled to Hawaii for a few days and of course I took just a few photographs.

Below are my selected favorite photographs. Pictures taken with a Nikon D5500 and a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. Edited in Lightroom 6. I hope you all enjoy.
