I processed this photo, taken at a fishpond in Mauna Lani, a while ago. For the life of me, I can’t remember why I made two versions.

I’m not sure I’m as taken with it now as I apparently was then.

I was taking photos of Tahitian Prawns in the stream at Hawai’i Tropical Bioreserve & Garden, but when I looked at them later, I mostly liked the abstract effect of the light and water. But, yes, there is a Tahitian Prawn in this photo.

The Harbor House restaurant sits on the shore next to Honokohau Harbor in Kailua Kona. The restaurant is open to the outdoors and has a wall of mirrors behind the serving counter. This is one reflection I saw in that wall.
