"After numerous requests for ‘anything’ of Hahei over the years, I was finally able to do justice to this magical place. After scouting the area for its potential, I noticed these Pohutukawa were smothered in bud & knew this could be a classic image once they flowered. Several weeks later I returned on this clear morning, just as their temporary brilliance was peaking & captured this rare display."
