This shot was taken nearly 5 years ago in Maui, Hawaii and for the first time is being published. This is why you keep raw files guys. Had I tortured this image with my editing from 5 years ago it would have been a tragic loss to this piece. The fog was rolling in during sunset and I was shooting in Poli Poli which is a wooded area on the hills of the Haleakala volcano in Maui. The sun could just barely break through to shine it's light on the trees, yet the fog was still strong enough to give it a very different feeling than the typical sunset...and it really diffused the light which was awesome.
This image and more will be part of my new landscape website/store and I can't wait to unveil it to you guys.
