Nature is Not Always in Color

Sometimes Nature is Colorful, Sometimes Not

 

Nature in black and white

 

I stumbled across this photo from Kauai, from a trip we took in 2017. Kauai is nicknamed the Garden Isle for good reason, a very lush, green and colorful place from the mountains to the valleys.

 

This photo was taken, as is, as the sun was setting from Kilauea Road. A rather different kind of sunset that my camera interpreted in its own way. Interesting trees, aren't they? They appear to be Cook Pine trees based on my research.

I totally get that Liz and Bill Spear . It was not a planned photo nor did I alter it in any way. Nature outdid herself!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 

Black and white photos are sometimes better! I have an art gallery friend in SFO who takes lots of b and w photos and posts on Instagram - they are wonderful.

The absence of color makes it more interesting when  photographing for sure. ;

If I had seen the photo without the explanation I would not have thought it was anywhere in Hawaii!

Good morning Jeff. Nature has a way of surprising us especially if we are at the right place at the right time. You nailed it. Enjoy your day.

Jeff,

Kauai is aptly named as the Garden Isle.  It is that and more.  And like Endre Barath, Jr. I really love black and white photos. I also like black and white movies, as imagination take care of color, and black a white shows so much more.  A

Jeff sometimes pictures in black, white, and multiple shades of  gray, can be as beautiful as those in full color.  I would say this one qualifies as one of those.

I get that Kat Palmiotti  It doesn't look like Hawaii at all in this photo. I think of palm trees!
