13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Lighting torches during the Maui sunset.
Traveling is the only way to understand and appreciate the natural beauty of the world. Traveling allows us to appreciate the history of our plant and allows us to see the world for our own eyes. The story behind this photo is a love story. My other half and I had just recently spent a year apart from each other and this was the first time we got to see each other since. we took a trip to Maui, Hawaii together and lit torches on the beach together. It represents the power that traveling has; traveling separated me from the love of my life but also brought us back together.
