Large Eucalyptus trees along the Hamakua coast on the Big Island.
I have been meaning to stop and take the time to venture into these trees for a very long time, but every time I drove by I was either in a hurry or the lighting wasn’t right. This time, however, was perfect. The sun was setting making the harsh highlights from the sun non-existent, but instead offered a soft even glow around each tree.
Entering the forest was a challenge since the grassy trail was taller than me. As I made my way through the grass and spider webs 🙁 …. and the deeper I went into the forest, the grass was a lot shorter and more manageable to photograph. With the light quickly fleeting I was able to shoot a handful of images. Two of which are what I set out to capture.
