AIACV (American Institute of Architects, Central Valley) which represents
seventeen counties in Northern California. Prestigious because it’s the first time
they have done this.
Congratulations! Our jury met and selected one of your submissions for 1st place
in the competition. In addition, two other images were selected to receive Honorable
HAWAII Magazine’s 11th Annual Photo Contest.
There was little argument over the top shot: Sacramento, Calif.-based architect Rudy
Calpo’s stunning photo of sunset breaking through a patch of clouds over the taro
fields of Hanalei, Kauai.
In his story behind the photo, Calpo wrote:
“My wife and I had just stopped by a vista point overlooking some taro fields. We
hurried back to the taro fields, hoping the sun would break through the heavy clouds.
Sure enough, we got lucky. When we got down to the fields, the clouds began to part.”
