The "Tree Tunnel"

Traveling on Maluhia Road between Po'ipu and Koloa, you will run through this mile-long tunnel of Eucalyptus trees surrounded by open fields (with more trees.) They were planted by settlers many years ago.


A 1993 hurricane tore up the full canopy which used to provide a large amount of shade to passing cars, and it has been growing back since.


I didn't have time to get my settings and hugely under-exposed this shot, but was able to recover most of the light from the raw file. Nonetheless, this place has potential for an amazing set of pictures. If you visit the area, make sure you stop here and check it out.
