Description

This plant only grows at the top of the Haleakala crater in Maui. It was near extinction in the 1920's and is now protected by the government. Image taken with a super color IR filter. I thought this created an "otherworldly"look.

Exif: F Number: 16, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/200 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 200, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 20.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS REBEL T1i
