Earlier this afternoon I spent a few minutes looking back at many of the photos I’ve taken here on the Big Island over the last year. As 2010 slips away and I’m reflecting on the many wonderful experiences (and the many changes) that have come my way over the last twelve months, I thought I’d share my five favorite photos, each of which represents an adventure or memorable Big Island moment.
