Tears Of Joy

 
“Tears of Joy”
It’s hard to describe the circumstances around getting this photo. The gist is running an errand last minute which was on a correction mission and driving through one of the craziest storms ever. Then, headed around traffic (because of construction) saw the mountains as the storm broke and was able to quickly get to a friends place with an epic view.
Needless to say this is a lot of water coming down Wai’ale’ale (and Kawakini-left falls). The mist is forming in a small valley that a small (usually) river rolls through. The massive water flow helped create its own clouds that would drift up.
Now, for those photogs out there. I learned another HUGE lesson today…again. I had changed my camera to shoot sRAW for the time-lapse and forgot to change it back in the excitement of this photo. ALWAYS check your settings. Alas the maximum print size for this image will be highly truncated.  Lesson learned!

Dozens of waterfalls pour down Wai'ale'ale after a severe rainstorm

  1. I really like this one, Aaron! The floating mist creates a lot of dimension that helps connect the foreground to the distant background. The waterfalls are also obviously gorgeous and really draw the eye in and move it around the frame. I gotta get back to Hawaii!
