This image attempts to couple the visual grandeur of French Polynesia along with the awe-striking power that it's visuals provide for those who visit. Here, a man reaches the summit of Mt. Rotui, French Polynesia; his silhouette, along with the endless horizon and seemingly floating mountaintop, represent the power of nature and the boundlessness of humanity's desires.

Location: Mt. Rotui, Moorea, French Polynesia
