I took these on the stretch of highway that continues on past Hana and found this to be one of the most underrated parts of the island. The road was not nearly as busy as the road to Hana and the vast fields are mostly untouched other than some small ranches.

    Your work takes my breath away. It is a soul sauna – a sense that finally…finally someone sees.

    Seeing that long drive reminds me of my race this year with Christ, and He’s about to finish it well. Next year will be another year of long drive, and let’s continue to take our journey letting Jesus hold the steering wheel! 😉 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year..:)

    Great BW shots! The clouds in the second picture look amazing as if they are caressing the hills.

    I am going to order the last one on this post, but I have two questions. I already have in my shopping cart two beautiful color photos from your Hawaii trip. Then I just added the last B/W on this page. But what is the difference between “luster” “metallic” and “glossy”? I don’t know which to get. Also, I am the one who is creating the huge wall collage of your pictures. Do you think color and b/w will go well together? I have no sense of this and want your opinion, since you’re the artist.

      I’m sorry for the long delay in replying, I was busy/traveling over the holidays.

      Luster is more matte
      Glossy is a regular glossy finish
      Metallic is basically a very glossy print

      If it is me I would only have colour prints in a collage or only have BW prints in a collage. Hope this answers all your questions 🙂

    Camera loves you. I see you from time to time at my nook but there are so many people here that I couldn’t put my thanks before, Patrick. So, thank you. Nature places (wild) and people (can be wild as well : ) are the most attractive objects. I’ve seen here some splendid shots of animals. Take care and I wish you good luck!

    Absolutely gorgeous pics! Especially that last black and white. I love photography (although I have yet to learn how to properly work a camera) and I’m also fascinated with watercolor and charcoal. I tend to have better luck with charcoal and pencil drawing.

    Beautiful shots, as always. I think it would be interesting to know the dates of when you took all your shots… kind of fun knowing when someone was where…. and, to get an idea of the season (for the non-snowfalling photos of course) 🙂

    Beautiful! The photo of the crashing waves against the stark rocks is particularly dramatic. Happy Christmas and new year! May there be ever more beauty to discover in 2013 🙂

    All right, it’s about high time I go through each photograph/photograph set I’ve ever reblogged and write a story or poem. I’ll start with this one as soon as I’m finished reading the chapter of the Jack Kerouac biography I’m reading.
