Light at the end of the tunnel: The end of a difficult situation or task, the solution to a difficult problem.
As we were heading into the tunnel that goes under the Scarlett Martinez International Airport near Río Hato I decided to try and take some photos.
During World War II the Río Hato Army Air Base was used by the United States Army Air Forces Sixth Air Force as part of the defence of the Panama Canal. By 1948 it was closed as an active Air Force facility but was used as an USAF auxiliary field as late as 1990 as part of Howard Air Force Base which is closer to Panama City. When the airport runway was restored and rehabilitated a tunnel was built under the Pan-American Highway, which formerly crossed the runway.
I took this photo on the way to the city as a bit of an experiment. For the theme for Day 10 of Photo 101 we’re tasked with working with natural and/or artificial light. Although I was using my phone camera I thought this light at the end of the tunnel came out not too bad. As we traveled through the tunnel from…the campo.
