Taro Fields Kauai

An ancient way of life on the islands of Hawaii are the Taro Fields. Flooded fields provide the perfect growing environment for the taro plant called “Kalo lo’i”. A traditional Hawaiian crop made from the root of the taro plant it is regarded by Hawaiians as the staff of life … And considering how healthy the hawaiians seem to be and our local diet I’d say maybe we should be eating a little more taro in our lives … I have tasted it once and found it not unpleasant but nothing to write home about either. Being a plant material I guess it is high in fiber and starch and just plain good for you in the end …

Between rain showers I managed to fire off a few images to stitch together to come away with this landscape photograph of the Taro Fields in North Kauai.

Next up we should have some screen shots of the new revamped website which has been a work in progress for around 5-6 months now … New logo, new layout, a few older landscape images have been trashed as when reloading every thing to the new site I cringed more often than not at some of my earlier works and they had to be trashed forever, never to see the light of day again … and a few new images added to the galleries …

cheers Neal
