This is the quintessential Road to Hana photograph. I’ve seen it in hundreds of advertisements, tour books, TV commercials and websites. Quite literally, there is a single spot where everyone stands to take this shot. How does a photographer bring something new and different to a photograph that has been taken by tens of thousands of people?
In my case, I brought along an IR camera to see if the shot might come alive in a different way. I don’t recall seeing any photographs of this spot that were taken with an Infrared (IR) camera, so I gave it the ol’ college try.
That’s what I love about photography. Just because someone else has taken the shot before, doesn’t mean that you can’t put your own twist on it.
Always keep exploring. Always keep trying. Always keep experimenting.
Here’s another version without color in the sky.
