Photograph of the Week: Maui Rainforest

I was soaked! And I was cold!The rain had been falling all morning, and I hiked up this trail to what the guidebook said was a small waterfall. I was in Maui, one of the Hawai’ian islands, and I dressed for the nice 70-80 degree weather Hawai’i is known for.But this particular morning, I had been dressed in a t-shirt and a pair of shorts, and as I was hiking in a rain forest (the eastern side of Maui is a verdant rain forest) – it was of course raining.I had been driving along the road to Hana. This particular road is loaded with over 30 waterfalls, and I have to admit that at the time my skills, not to mention, my equipment, was lacking.But I still had a eye for composition, or so I believed.And so I took a lot of waterfall pictures that particular morning, but again without the proper equipment – this case neutral density filters – to increase my exposure time to get nice and smooth water.  On my way back from taking a waterfall photograph that was up into the rain forest, off the beaten path, I found this scene. I loved the moss that seem to grow everywhere, and I knew I wanted a photograph of the mossy trees.It had been raining (it is a rain forest, after all!) and in between the showers, with the camera I had, I was able to make this photograph. For me this photograph captures the feeling and sense of what I felt as I loved hiking that trail that morning on my way to Hana!In May, I will return to Maui. I may even hike this particular trail again.  And with the experience and knowledge of photography I have learned over the years, I expect a great improvement in my photographs that I take in Maui.

A Tiny Travel Guide

A Tiny Travel Guide to Busan, Republic of Korea

A part of the series titled ‘Tiny Travel Guides,’ this travel guide is a quick overview that focuses on several places to visit while visiting Busan, South Korea. South Korea’s second largest city, Busan has many places for the tourist to visit, including my top two locations of Beomeosa Buddhist Temple (absolutely exquisite!) and of course Gamcheon Cultural Village. Both make excellent day visits. And if you have the time, definitely visit Haeundae Beach! It has wonderful nightlife and famous for it’s street entertainment.
There are also suggestions for photographers on what kind of shots you can and should perhaps focus on when visiting these wonderful locations!

A little bit about me . . .

Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens.

Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but can’t decide on my next camera) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape and travel photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times!

Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
