Hawaii........the detail photos

The beauty of a place is not always in vast and epic landscapes, beauty is also found in the small and minute details of things. I have always been a big fan of macro photography as it makes breakdown a scene into very small details. Things that are often missed by many can make the most beautiful photos. By now you probably all know that my time on the Big Island was mired by terrible weather, shooting landscapes was just not possible due to constant rains, so i was forced to look for photos in smaller details. Shooting macro photos also proved difficult though as with bad weather comes strong winds and when you are shooting so close youre working with fractions of an inch of focus. Even a slight breeze can throw a composition out of focus.......its very tedious work. In short there were many attempts but few successes, i did try something new this year in the form of a macro panoramic. No thats not a typo its is exactly as it sounds, multiple macro photos shot in a row to make a panoramic photo. These panos are nowhere near perfect but came out satisfactory, suffice it to say that as frustrating as it was to shoot them it will be a technique that i will be working on perfecting. Enjoy!

Again, the 1st 4 photos are links, click on them to view the panos larger :)
