While other places across the globe may be most recognized by particular manmade landmarks, the Hawaiian islands can be identified by magnificent mountains and iconic beaches. The North Shore of Oahu, also known as the Seven Mile Miracle, is one of my favorite places in Hawaii. Catching a sunset here is always worth the drive, time, and effort expended. The vog, or volcanic ash, coming from the Big Island the week this image was captured, transformed the sun into a distinct, glowing orb. Even as I observe this image while telling its story I find myself pulled into the sunlight and calm, natural ambiance of the fabled North Shore.
