Plumeria Inside Koko Head Crater

I find this photograph awe-inspiring. The sun is shining so vividly on the plumeria petals, they look as though they're lite up. This photo has always been one of my favorites. At first glance the photo looks abstract and the color spectrum creates a strong contrast.
