Description

Just outside of Kilauea is the beautiful Kalihiwai Valley, whose fertile lands are watered by the river of the same name. Captured from a helicopter as we were exiting the crater of Kilauea to be able to show the widest expanse of the valley below. Handheld to absorb the vibrations from the rotors. I chose a 'copter without doors to avoid reflections from and scratches on the plastic windows. I asked the pilot to point the aircraft left and hover so that none of it intruded into the frame.
