Kohala waterfall

Kohala Waterfall

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Photo-editor.’ See more responses here.

A few weeks ago I posted a composite photo of a rainbow here, which would have been a good choice for this challenge. But I also had more recent photos, of a waterfall in the Kohala Mountains, that I wanted to combine.

I couldn’t capture the full drop of this waterfall, probably somewhere between 500 and 1,000 feet, in one image, so I took two photos. This presented a couple of challenges. First was to combine the image of the top of the falls with the one of the bottom of the falls. The second challenge involved dealing with the horizontal offset of these two photos. Since I was in a helicopter at the time, we’d moved forward between shooting the images.

I’m pretty happy with the final image, especially the capture of the mini rainbow at the base of the falls. Anyway, feel free to see if you can spot where the two photos are connected.

Thanks to Sunshine Helicopters for the tour.

      I tell you, the helicopter tour of the valleys and waterfalls was awesome. I didn’t appreciate the scale of things until we were flying in the valleys. Totally worth it.
