Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale, Or: Waipio Valley, Hawaii

Waipio ValleyThis week’s photo challenge calls for some scaling. I remembered this photo I took at Waipio Valley on the Big Island. It’s an incredibly beautiful and historically significant place; it was considered sacred land and the capital of the early Hawaiian kings. While the overall view from the lookout was amazing, I almost didn’t notice the (relatively) tiny waterfall at the far end of the shoreline. Fun fact: this was taken literally five minutes before the valley was engulfed in an intense rainstorm. I was lucky to get the shot.

You literally have to go to the end of the road – Highway 270, in this case – to see this part of the Big Island. Definitely worth the drive, though…
