It is so important that we humans visit some of the most amazing places on the planet. We are here on earth for virtually no time in consideration to the birth of the universe and space time. Why we wouldn't explore for our entire lives is beyond me. I myself, am way behind on fulfilling the dream. Time to set higher highs, dig deep and be extraordinary in every way and in every part of our lives!
Tunnel to Paradise: Maui, Hawaii

"The Cave you fear to enter, holds the treasure you seek"
~Joseph Campbell

Hawaii blew my mind in the sheer variety of landscapes that it has. From sheer peaks, to powerful oceans, there's something for everybody in these islands. The one thing that was definitely a stand out feature for me was the variety of sand in the beaches. There was just about every color that you could imagine from green, yellow, white, red and black! While visiting one such black sand beach, I chanced upon a small opening through which I could crawl through. I had no idea if it was the home of wildlife, or if it would be a dead end. I took my chances and squeezed through and I was enveloped in darkness. Only sound guided me through the path. A sound of water crashing against the rocks grew louder and louder as I walked further in. Eventually I saw the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, and this was my treasure. A view to behold!

Getting this whole 200 degree field of view was a challenge to say the least. Not only did I have to take 3 images for just the field of view, I had to bracket each one to get the incredible dynamic range of the scene. The camera just couldn't handle the difference. I would rank this image as one of the hardest blends I've ever done in my life. It took a lot of effort to get it right. I hope this conveys the grandeur of the scene as I saw it.
