Lanai Island, Hawaii, 1997

Photograph by Jim Richardson

Overcoming a swell of threatening clouds, the heavens part over Hawaii’s Lanai Island, bestowing a celestial glow on a patchwork of former pineapple fields. Lanai once produced almost 75 percent of the world’s pineapples; today, as production moves to cheaper markets overseas, Hawaiian farmers are converting their fields into solar energy farms.
