Rapa Nui - Easter Island
Lens: 15mm, 35mm Camera: Pentax K-7 Photo Location: Easter Island 
Posted By: ktwse, 01-30-2010, 09:54 AM

My wife and I went to Chile for a three week vacation, visiting many of her relatives, earlier this month. We managed to get some "own time" as well, and jumped on a flight to Easter Island where we spent four days. Words cannot do the place justice, and neither can images, but here's a few shots from there.

The only thing I regret is that we didn't spend more time there. Some of these scenes I would have loved to visit at different times of day and in different weather.

All taken with the K-7 and either the DA15 or the DA35.

And the next one to give you an idea of what else you can do on, or rather below, Rapa Nui... That's my wife on the left and me on the right. The moai is fake, I'm afraid.

Great shots and nice lens choices to take along, well done. The first one is my pick however, I'd crop the bottom of it so there is not as much black space.

Very nice series,
For me the first one the best, it ticks all the boxes but I'd perhaps crop it a bit

Love the series. I liked the second one the best.
Always have wanted to visit Rapa Nui, your shots only further my interest. Someday, I hope.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments! I lean towards cropping a couple of them as well...

Easter Island is an amazing place, and has always been very high on my list of dream destinations, together with places such as Galapagos and Antarctica. For anyone interested in photography going there, I'd recommend trying get a few more days in. Since we spent one day diving, we only had two days to explore the island, and with so much to see, there's little time left to return to places and you're really at the mercy of the weather.
