Botanical Garden, Oahu, Hawaii
The Story of "Oahu's Mystic Mountains"
Known more for its beaches, the savage, mountainous landscapes of Oahu were a very pleasant surprise and provided some of the most amazing photo opportunities of any island. Something about their shear cliffs and jungle greens elicit the feeling like there are still many stories waiting to be told for those who venture into their depths.
I took this photo on a visit to the Botanical Gardens, finding myself much less interested in the gardens but captivated by the looming mountainscapes in the distance. Rather than trying to include too much of the scene, this photo was taken in tight on one section, accentuating the details of the savage terrain.
