Tears Of Joy by aFeinPhoto-com Tears Of Joy by aFeinPhoto-com
It's hard to describe the circumstances around getting this photo. The gist is running an errand last minute which was on a correction mission and driving through one of the craziest storms ever. Then, headed around traffic (because of construction) saw the mountains as the storm broke and was able to quickly get to a friends place with an epic view.

Needless to say this is a lot of water coming down Waialeale (and Kawakini-left falls). The mist is forming in a small valley that a small (usually) river rolls through. The massive water flow helped create its own clouds that would drift up.

Now, for those photogs out there. I learned another HUGE lesson today...again. I had changed my camera to shoot sRAW for the time-lapse and forgot to change it back in the excitement of this photo. ALWAYS check your settings. This can only be printed 20x30 now :/

I didn't know there was an sRAW. What's the difference :?
Ah yes, I make that mistake all the time :( I change to JPEG sometimes when I'm doing really casual shots, and in my excitement, I forget to change it back to RAW before doing something serious.

Well NEVER shoot JPG. :p sRAW is just a smaller RAW file. Not all cameras have it. I keep having to learn my lesson to switch back!

Just checked to be sure, but I don't have it :(
It's a little painful though >.< To shoot in RAW when it's going to take 4 times more space. I just can't bear spending all the space on something that isn't a certain standard.

As long as you nail the exposure, shooting in jpg shouldnt be a prob for timelapses

yep, small raw. and timelapse b/c no need for full 21mp files. HD is 1080p which is already SMALLER than sRAW files...

That is something you don't see everyday...I guess you would have no trouble at all finding a waterfall here since there's at least a dozen of them just in this frame...Remarkable.

And here in the desert I have to travel at least two hours to see one decent waterfall...I gotta visit Hawaii sometime.
