Hawaii is known for many beautiful natural scenes. One of the most spectacular is the 442-foot-tall Akaka Falls waterfall. My goal was to capture a VAST photo of the falls surrounded by the lush green vegetation Hawaii is known for.

On this particular day, the volume of water falling was somewhat diminished, leading to more distinct patterns in the falls becoming visible – something I prefer over an overflowing waterfall that just becomes a monotonous wall of white. When this low-water-flow situation is paired with long-exposure photography, the result is an image that has silky smooth water patterns cascading down the rocks, creating fascinating patterns that draw viewers’ eyes.

Adding to the allure of this VAST photo is the rainbow that appears at the base of the falls. Hawaii is such a magically beautiful place and this rainbow is further testament to that.

My goal with this VAST photo was to ensure I captured that magical feeling with as much detail and resolution as I could. The resulting image is nearly 200 megapixels, leading to strikingly high-quality prints that I can take great pride in.
