This taro field near Hanalei is planted and then flooded with water until the tubers are ready for harvest. I waited for a week for these conditions to appear. A big rain created 7 waterfalls (5 seen here and all seven in the image 'Water'), which only last a few hours. All I had to do here was wait for the breeze to calm down for 6 seconds and for the moon to pop out from behind the clouds.  I needed F22 despite the long resulting exposure time because I wanted the leaves to be close in front and for them to be in sharp focus.
