Kauai Island - Hawaiian Archipelago 2002

A unusual aerial shot over the southern coast at Poipu beach (I think...) taken on a free fall in a tandem glider from 7500 ft above , you can see the rich geomorphology, red oxided (famous Haeaiian red dirt) ground, lush sugarcane fields in the back and the coral reef as it occures in this Pacific parts.
Camera was mounted on the right wing (no political interpretation please!) and pictures snapped from a wire remote control. What an adrenaline rush !!!
The lens was wide angle 16 mm .
