Red Hibiscus at Dusk

wpid-2015-02-12-18.43.05.jpg.jpegThis was taken in the gardens at Kahalu’u Country Store at dusk on February 12, 2015. That faint white disk in the top-right quadrant is a peek of light through the foliage. The 50mm lens was shot wide open at f/1.4, 1/500s, iso 1250. A square crop seemed apt.

The intention was to have clarity and detail on the dainty accompanied by interesting bokeh in the background.

Garden addition

Anybody able to ID this floral? Visitors and friends give us plants or sometimes leave orphans with us. It’s an interesting collection and well appreciated. This time I wasn’t around so I have no clue on this plant’s identity.

The plant is in a concrete pot located on our farm on our South Road directly across from the nursery at Kahalu’u Country Store. Mahalo!

You’re welcome to visit to come see it and other plants on the farm! We’re open 10am -2pm, MWF, or by arrangements. Tech: a7r, 50mm asph lux, hawks adapter (links are to Amazon and Ebay).

Aloha, today’s February 9, 2015 and this is my first post.  I’m blogging in the hopes of sharing and finding common or related interests that either one of us or both find value.

A picture’s worth countless words, so to save time, you’ll probably see a lot of photos and associated titles to which you’re welcome to comment, question and contact me. In the end, if something productive comes about, then I would consider this blogging effort worthwhile.

Mahalo!
