Dawn’s Early Light

Kauai, Hawaii

Rainbow eucalyptus trees, which are typically found in warm, tropical areas of the Northern Hemisphere, have colorful exteriors that make them extremely photogenic. There are all kinds of ways to capture the beauty of these trees but few people capture these trees the way I like to do it. By panning the camera at a fairly slow shutter speed, I was able to turn the bark into long streaks of color. The technique gives this image the look of a watercolor painting.
