Photographer's Note

I know i'm probably not showing anything new and exciting here, but can you blame me for wanting to keep posting photo's from Easter Island??

If you ever get the opportunity to visit, you'll find these Moai Heads in 2 basic ways.

Renting a vehicle and driving around the Island you'll come across them sporadically, miles apart along the coast line, one lonely face looking out onto the ocean...and or you'll see them grouped together like this at one specific sight - this was at Rano Raraku.

My only wish for the photo itself was better lighting on the Moai face in the fg, but we can't get what we want all the time! I loved the sky and clouds, it was a perfect day!

Hope you like it

PS
Rosemary and Anghsu have already commented that i could have used HDR, as i often do, to bring out the face in the Moai. They're right...i tried already but the lighting was not in my favor. At this exact moment when taking the photo, the light was best facing the opposite direction.

The HDR version of this that i have, the colors are washed out so i didn't keep it.

If only we had an infinite amount of time on our journeys, I would have gladly stayed longer for the best light! Hope you still enjoy the photo
