Welcome to Travel Photo Mondays
It’s Monday morning, time to enjoy some gorgeous travel photography and inspiration from around the world. Let’s banish those Monday blues by sharing gorgeous imagery and story telling.
Views of Hilo Bay
It’s late afternoon in Hilo bay and I’m sharing some wonderful afternoon to evening views of Hilo bay while sailing on a catamaran. We are taking a nice slow cruise around the bay and head into adjoining Reeds Bay where the ocean liners dock in Hilo. It’s a wonderful time of day to be outdoors in Hilo, even with dark moody skies above the town. I actually like to have clouds in my pictures – they create interesting light and amazing skies frame excellent views to the landscape.
Cruising next to the busy port area of Reeds Bay, there are usually cruise ships docked at the terminal, but its quiet today so it’s great to take pictures of the bay and sailboats. There are many sailboats docked here, bobbing up and down in the gentle waves amid quiet views of the bay.
Dark clouds loom over the quiet port of Hilo
The clouds here in Hawaii are always changing and creating dramatic light.
Partial sunset views over Hilo Bay and the Hamakua coastline,
stunning even without the sun setting on the east side.
I hope you enjoyed this brief tour of the harbor and views of Hilo bay, it’s spectacular on days like this with amazing clouds and light. Come and take a look at some of the other entries for todays Travel Photo Mondays below.

All of your pictures are breathtaking! I enjoyed seeing through all of them!
People complain about dark moody clouds, but sometimes it makes such interesting photographs. Never been to hilo, or Hawaii actually. One of these days!
Hilo Bay must be an awesome place for a nice, slow cruise. Mr. TWS is a big clouds guy, so I’ll pass this along to him. He’ll love that top shot. Gorgous photos all around!
Wow, stunning skies!
Love your photos of Hawaii.
Great pictures as usual! 🙂 It looks like a storm is coming!
You are speaking my language, I’m obsessed with clouds!
You made even the port look good, you really nailed it. Loved those dramatic dark clouds.
Dramatic shots of the sky, simply love it! Cant do that in Ireland now a days, its way to dark for it 😀 lol
Beautiful Hilo bay photos, especially the the first one.
Beautiful photos of these dramatic clouds that were over Hilo, Noel. The bay looks lovely.
I enjoyed our catamaran trip-the cloud formations were amazing-how interesting to see them in so many different moods!
Have a terrific week-
Lovely Captures.. 😀
Clouds really do add a lot of texture and interest to a photo, don’t they? We really enjoyed our day in Hilo. You are so fortunate to get to explore it at a more leisurely pace.
Amazing photos, so colorful…
I remember docking here a few years ago whole on a cruise ship. Honestly, I didn’t even look around much since we were too busy trying to get to the airport to get our rental car. Beautiful views and some of those clouds are so ominous. Thanks for hosting a great hop as always.
HI Noel, I indeed enjoyed the tour of the harbor and views of Hilo Beach. Truly spectacular. Amazing clouds and lightings. And stunning photography as usual.
Thanks a lot for hosting! I love travelling from my armchair thanks to you!
thanks Magali for joining, I also love visiting your neck of the woods!
