Red Road High Beams

One my favorite places to shoot on the Big Island is along the Red Road in the Puna District. It's nice that we only live a few minutes from the Red Road (which is no longer red...story later).

This road glides along the coastline through what is left of 'Old Hawaii'.

Hey Ron,

You got some really sweet beams coming through there. Nice work.

The light rays does it for me. Nicely done.
My only suggestion would be to increase color temperature a little bit to warm the scene.

Thanks guys. This road is right next to the ocean (ocean is to the left) and when the conditions are right the sun illuminates the sea mist. I've been to the spot dozens of times and this had the most 'beams' than any other time I've been there before or since. I'll find some time to post a shot that shows the ocean to the left and maybe rework the raw file with a little more warmth and see what happens. Thanks again guys.

Ron,
This is a lovely scene, and you caught it perfectly.
I wonder if a bit more contrast could be added without losing too much detail?
I'll bet it would emphasize those wonderful light beams even more.

Thanks Charlie, I agree it needs more contrast and it's a fine line on this one. Thanks Morris.

I really need to learn to use layers and masking as this is the type of image that really needs that technique. Right now I'm just doing the basic stuff to the image....time to watch the tutorials that are on the hard drive.

This image shows the ocean just to the left of the road and was taken, of course, at a little different angle which lost sight of a lot of the beams. I also processed this one a little differently than the first one.

You will love it! I prefer to spend time here as well as the mainland. I'm afraid that I would get a little stale being here 24/7. Are you thinking about moving to the Big Island? In my opinion, the Big Island is the greenest and wildest. Sometimes a little too wild depending on where you are. Still al lot of 'old Hawaii' here.

Yes it is. You can still find it in the Puna District here on the Big Island and along the Hana Road on Maui. If I could, I would move to the Hana side of Maui as I've never felt so much at home anywhere else, including Colorado which I love.

Parts of the Puna District are still pretty wild. There are areas that, if you have a brain, you just do not go into after dark.
