Happy [Photo Challenge] Friday! I felt like this week went by super slow, but it’s almost the weekend! This past week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “On the Way”. The photo challenge prompted participants to share a photo of something they saw on their way to their destination. Oftentimes there are great gems on the way to a destination. The photo I chose, I shared on here last summer, but not for a photo challenge.
This amazing picture is an aerial view from my plane on the way to Hawaii. We were getting ready to descend onto Oahu, which was not my final destination — at least not at that time. I landed in Honolulu, Oahu and then caught another plane to the Big Island. I did later spend a few days in Honolulu before heading home.I love this photo so much and believe it or not, this picture hasn’t been retouched at all. Seriously, not at all! The vibrant colors of the sky, clouds, green/blue ocean and the lush land underneath is all natural. The majestic Hawaiian islands are my favorite. Just looking at how beautiful this photo is and it’s a picture from a plane, thousands of feet in the air mind you, and it’s no wonder why it’s one of my all-time favorite places on earth. I’ve been lucky enough to have visited multiples times. I haven’t been to all the islands yet, but I plan to in the future. This is hands down my best “on the way” picture!
