Kauai's Tree Tunnel on the way to Koloa town and Poipu beach, was planted over 150 years ago when the wealthy 'Scotsman' and Kauai cattle rancher Walter Duncan McBryde donated over 500 Eucalyptus trees that were left over after landscaping his estate. The tree tunnel is over a mile long and shades the cars that pass underneath along the highway.
Where I was standing to get this shot was at a three way intersection, and of course I picked one of the busiest times to try and get it! I really wanted this shot without any cars in it and I noticed that every few minutes there would be a break in the traffic. After standing in the middle of the road for about 10 minutes I got this shot a split second before a car came into the frame on my right side. The only thing I had to clone out was some lady standing on the right side of the road taking pictures with her camera phone!
