After watching the inauguration this morning, I climbed up to the edge of Diamond Head crater. It’s a steep 1-mile climb with lots of stairs and tunnels — and I always enjoy seeing the ruins of military fortifications put out to pasture.
I turn out to be scowling in every single photo I took — there were big swarms of gnats at the summit.
I’m also tinkering a bit with panoramic photo-stitching. This is a view (click the image for a bigger version) from outside the crater, right before the path goes into a long, dark and high-traffic tunnel:

I’ll have to remember to get more shots of clouds, next time.
