Return to Honiara (2013)

These images were captured with Nikon D300 using RAW format.

Honiara is not the most engaging of Pacific island capitals, but the central market, the inter-island shipping docks and the busy, scruffy, shopping strip do lend a few hours interest - particularly on arrival from the outer islands.

Departing Honiara, a sea voyage northbound through 'The Slot', of Second World War fame, offers grand panoramas of forested ranges and immense cloudbanks.
