The Hawaiian Islands were once known as “Sandwich Islands” a name that was chosen by James Cook in honor of the First Lord of the Admiralty (John Montagu). The Hawaiian Islands form the exposed peak of the great undersea mountain range known as the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain that resulted from volcanic activity over a hotspot in the earth’s mantle.
Amongst photographers it is often debated whether man made structures, cities or coastal subjects are representative of landscape photography. Often times these subjects are categorized in different genres, such as Seascape Photography and Cityscape Photography. From a technical standpoint, there is validity to this argument in that landscape photography is a sub genre of Nature photography and man made structures are not natural.
