Plumeria 'Maui Beauty'


Frangipani
Plumeria rubra 'Maui Beauty'
(ploo-MEER-ee-a)

The aptly named ‘Maui Beauty’ from the Plumeria Grove at the Koko Crater Botanical Gardens on Oahu. Many of the Plumeria trees were dormant but there were a few that had some blooms.

We are off to the airport to catch a flight to The Valley Isle (Maui) so I thought this flower’s name was appropriate.

That's gorgeous! Have you taken the color out of the background via digital editing, or was it a happy accident (and a good eye) in terms of siting of this particular bloom?

(Sorry if I sound like a photography novice above... it's only because I am! :)

Hi Kim,

Kind of a lucky shot to get the background like that. It was late afternoon so the light was right. I didn't do much editing except boost the contrast a little.
