Ok...so maybe I'll edit from March '09 now :-P Editing ADD.
I was lucky enough to be up in Waimea canyon during a wet stretch. This is the same location as "climate contradiction" (which I just realized I never posted here and will later today). When comparing the two images you can see the difference the rain makes. Usually this hillside is drrrryyyyyy. The early morning cloudy light helped pop the colors. I have a whole set both in color and bw from this area that will be coming online soon!
Thanks for the c/c. (be sure to notice the cactus...yes cactus in the lower left)
