Why? Why? Why?
My previous picture was removed by TE moderator. Sorry, for people who gave me the critiques. Thanks. It probably also caused misunderstanding or confusion. So, I need to do some explanation.
When I was posting my picture, I saw a photo about advertisement was quickly disappeared. That means the moderator was checking the site at that time. My picture should be immediately identified as violation of the TE rules. And it should be removed immediately. But this picture had “survived” for long long time until...... So I have a good reason to believe that the removal of my picture was caused by someone who reported it to moderator. Then the moderator took action.
This picture is not only about flowers. It is also about the beauty of Hawaii and the uniqueness of Hawaii. I really wanted to include it to my travelogue.
I will post a request on Forum.
Hookipa Beach Park
The Road to Hana is a wiggle of a road that runs along Maui's northeastern shore. Going to Hana is about the journey, not the destination. It winds for 50 miles past taro patches, magnificent seascapes, waterfall pools, botanical gardens, and verdant rainforests, and it ends at one of Hawaii's most beautiful tropical places.
Hookipa Beach Park is located at very beginning of the drive where the world top-ranked windsurfers come to test themselves against the forces of nature: thunderous surf and forceful wind. World-championship contests are held here. But we didn’t see any windsurfer that day.

Désolé pour ta photo qui a été retirée et que je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de voir. c'est frustrant car ça m'est arrivé à plusieurs reprises. Celle-ci ne le sera pas, elle est magnifique avec un beau bord de mer rocheux et une belle plage de sable blanc. Le bleu de la mer me donne envie de partir en vacances.

Miss Tiffany, don't worry I'll support you, your picture was correct I remember it was frangipani blossoms (Plumeria acuminata) on volcanic roks and as u say in the photo note, sure that it's a mistake.
Today's post is very attractive with plesant colors and an excellent resolution, keep posting, take care, good monday

Really sorry to hear about your last post. Hope, in some way, you will be able to upload it again.
This landscape is absolutely unique and beautiful with truly spectacular combination of intensive and clear tones. Simple but also eye-catching one! TFS.

Very beautiful colors of this beach scene. I like the composition and the presentation. Well taken.
PS. Don't wonder why, we all had this problem, some of the old members left the scene already...

This is a perfect picture, totally TE safe! I noticed your thread in the forum yesterday and I am as surprised as you are, that some of these pictures are allowed to remain. But you should know that adding a tiny insect always make the flower TE safe... But I think the moderators should warn first and let you make the necessary adjustment yourself. It is very rude to just delete a picture without a notice.

Fine idyllic view of a famous Maui beach, and I am surprised - no wind or kite surfers, because this is one of America's top spots.
PS: Do not despair about having a photo removed. I once had a beach scene removed because someone complained it was a family photo, which it wasn't, just an attractive female model.

Beauté de la mer avec les rochers noir qui donne son petit coté sauvage et une belle plage de sable blanc, tout qui m'attire ici
