orange hibiscus

after having spent the better part of two days exploring old jaffa in the south end of tel aviv, it was getting time to start exploring… we had made plans to visit with my aunt and cousin and their families in the north of israel at kibbutz hanita. we had visited the kibbutz during our prior visit a couple of decades ago. i remember being struck by the weird and wonderful flowers around my aunt’s house. alas, this time, no such luck… during my first morning stroll in the kibbutz, i did come across a few hibiscus – this one was the standout!

wilted (colour and b&w)

Wilted

Wilted (B&W)

every once in a while i get a hankering for some studio photography. i have no formal studio lights – i tend to use existing light… in this case i used a wilting sunflower from a bouquet my wife received for her birthday a couple of weeks earlier. i set this one up using a black background positioned so that the light hit the scene just so.

yucca in the fog

Yucca In The Fog

the coastal drive was still very foggy by the time i reached julia pfeffer burns state park, home of mcway falls: the 80 foot tower falls that apparently flow year round as mcway creek cascades onto the sandy cove below.

it was still early (around 7:30am) and as one might expect, the place was deserted… i made my way onto the waterfall overlook trail and looked for a good vantage point to shoot the scene from. spotting the (yellow) yucca flowers, i knew i wanted to include them in the frame…
