Second, the weather is too good. I heard it had rained for over 10 days before we came, but not when we arrived. Unfortunately, the sky was awfully bright the day we went up the mountains. Good weather is bad weather when you try to photograph. The bright sky looks so white and dead, and it creates too much shadow and thus too much contrast. Even worse is the white fog that just looks like a mask that de-colors the scenery. I wished there were clouds and partial mist. I wished it rained.
Other than the complaints... It was a great trip. If you think that the scenery in "Avatar" is good. Go see the real thing! Check out my gallery for some of my new pictures.
