Upper Evolution Basin

This image was made while hiking the John Muir Trail. When we finally got high in Evolution Basin, we finally found an acceptable campsite. This image was made almost right from camp.

I lived on Oahu for 7 years, you will have an adventure taking photos, especially on the Big Island and Maui. I love this shot and the colors. Spectacular!
