17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
View of the Sunset from the Seat of a Plane Over the Pacific Ocean

While flying from Los Angeles to Hawaii (and sitting by Kelly Slater, pro surfer) I opened the window shade and noticed an amazing site as we were descending through the clouds. The sun was setting over the unusually calm Pacific Ocean. Kelly asked if I could lean back so he could take a shot, as well (which was pretty cool).
