Bamboo Forest

Hi Everyone - This is Dana. Thanks for letting me join the blog.

My first contribution will be this photo of the bamboo forest that hikers pass through on the way to Manoa Falls. I took it today, while on a team building activity for work.

Manoa Falls is located at the deepest part of the Manoa valley in Honolulu, Hawaii (not far from the University of Hawaii). The waterfall is a 150 foot sheer cliff drop to a small shallow pool. To get there one must take a 1 1/2 mile (easy) hike through this bamboo forest and rain forest.

My camera is a Canon Rebel E0S which I recently received as a gradution gift from my parents.

Welcome Dana! Great photo. It is a familiar site for me. I went on that hike with some coworkers when I was there in 2000. I look forward to seeing more of your photos. I have had a Canon EOS Digital Rebel for 2 years now and I love it:)

hello dana! kala is so fortunate to have you along on the Honolulu ride!

this shot is so reminiscent of a 70s Hong Kong Kung-Fu movie. any moment now I'd be expecting a fighter flying through the bamboo stalks.

I wonder what the two of you will come up with for the 100th post?
