When traveling in Kauai, Hawaii for the DIgital Landscape Workshop Series with Moose Peterson, we passed this road of trees. I dont remember much of that time other than how completely serene the tunnel made me feel as we crossed through. A lot of me really wanted to be able to run out of the car and take a picture of it, but alas we had to get to the afternoon shoot.
How happy was I that a few days later I would pass it on a trip to get some Puka Dogs. This time, Jeff Leimbach and I were able to stop the car and make some shots. I was very grateful for his family to give us the opportunity to make this picture. While I shot many pictures during that visit, this one really reminds me of how calm it felt to be there.
How grateful was I that I was able to take a bracket of images for me to process later. A couple of clicks and turns of this mechanical box and I was able to recreate what it felt like passing through, if for just a bit.
