Sunrise and Plumerias, 4/9/17

 We (Derek, Milton S., Dewey and myself) made photos from Makapuu Beach at 5:45 am.

As the sun rose, I got frustrated because I did not know how to adjust the camera to reflect what I was seeing. The sun was super bright and my photos were coming out dark. Still need to learn more about photography.

One last photo before leaving.

Kokohead Botanical Garden...

Milton S, alerted me that these guys were next to me. I therefore moved away.

I was more successful using my iPhone 6s. I was amazed with the details in the water droplets.

This is cropped to emphasize the droplets and I did change the resolution to 300 dpi.

We enjoyed an early lunch at Fatboys at Koko Marina. Thanks guys!!!

I know exactly what you mean about not being able to capture what my eyes are seeing.

Really Jalna? Thanks I feel better that I am not the only one. I think I short changed myself because I did not use my Canon which has metering. The Fuji was lighter but not as sophisticated.
