National Geographic Logo By Sarah Polger of National Geographic | Slide 1 of 40: "One of my best friends invited me along for his first helicopter ride. I had seen Kauai from above before, but this time was very different. The experience was very emotional and special when shared with the right people. This might be my favorite photograph I have ever taken. Leaning out the door of a helicopter, above the most beautiful place on earth."

Napali Coast, Kauai, Hawai'i
