Many years ago my wife and I were hiking in the hills above Waiehu when we came across this scene. There was actually a large pipe with a valve suspended across the water, which I removed in the name of artistic license. It's nice to be able to do that now and then, as many a good subject is marred by little things.
We've been in the same area many times since but we can't locate it. These waterways were used to irrigate the cane fields at the time. I thought it was an interesting challenge because there was so much light flooding the scene yet no visible sky.
