14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Through the Valley

The perfect morning, light winds, beautiful calm weather, perfect for flying. I remember thinking our flight would get canceled due to heavy rain and high winds the previous 2 days. I woke up at 5am and looked out the window and I knew it was going to be a great day! This image is was take near Ka'awa Hawaii, one of the few areas on Oahu that still holds its natural beauty and unfazed by development.
