Waves breaking against rocks in Honolulu

This photograph was taken in a Hawaii national park during my vacation in Honululu. It centers on a rock that seems to be emerging from the sea. It stood out to me because I felt like the rock represented courage, fighting against the constant push and pull of the waves. I believe this photograph represents sustainable travel because it inspires us to preserve nature so future generations can experience the joys we do today.
