If you haven’t made the time to get yourself to Hawaii, you really should! Time spent there is restful for the soul and renewing to the spirit. Hawaii operates at a completely different pace and attitude than the rest of the country. This shot was made on a December evening following a tough day of whale watching, snorkeling with turtles, beach lounging, volcano exploring, and mahi mahi eating while listening to island music. I know every state boasts of its uniqueness, but Hawaii really is an exceptional place.
