Online Photo Album of Maui Plumeria Photos
Here you can find an online album of creative commons plumeria images. Use them for web design or your blog posts. Each photo is copyright free, the only thing I ask is to make an attribution and link to Sherry Venegas, because I do ask for a little credit for my time and work.
With the small rules said, I want to say a little about the beginnings of the album and why I started it.
Being the senior generation I now have time to do whatever I want. Even on vacation I like to do focused projects. This project is going to be a collection of photos of the early summer blooming plumeria on Maui.
I have a new camera. It is not an SLR or a high end priced camera, but I do have to experiment to learn the features the camera has, so I can get the most buck for my money. I purchased the cherry apple red P500 Nikon to take pictures with.
Pink Plumeria in Hawaii.
My last trip out of LA afforded me time to learn the telephoto lens on my camera. I practiced on the plumerias that were in bloom in late June on the island of Maui.
The standard white flowering tree spouts large flowers on substantial clusters on evenly placed areas of the tree. These are planted in almost every yard and golf course on the island.
Here is a single bloom on a green lawn. It is snowy white with a bright yellow center.
Below is one of several clusters on a tree. All the plumerias in Hawaii have dark bark trunks and are tree sized. I saw no new plants anywhere in the island. Almost all the blooms were high above my head and the 32X telephoto lens helped me get more closeups.
With this camera it is possible to zoom in with a touch of a slider button that surrounds the photo taking push button. A second step for getting a focused closeup is to set the close up button on the scene setting.
The leaves of the white plant are long large and dark green and always very clean and shiny.
The Guide I Used On Maui
I have one of these guides by Andrew Doughty for each Hawaiian island I have visited. This guide really gives you a first person take on everything to see and do on Maui. The maps are excellent and mile by mile marker highlights can be followed on each major highway.
We are so confident with the author's suggestions this year we drove north west Maui Hwy 30 and the single lane Hwy 340. It was a fresh and beautiful experience. Hwy 30 to the Blowhole is okay for everyone. I would only advise an experienced, share the road driver for the 340 stretch.
Do not forget the Upcountry if you have the time on Maui. Explore Hwys. 37 and 377.
Plumeria Online Photo Album
I will be hosting the plumeria images at flickr.com. They are available at Free Use Plumeria Images
For the next few months only plants from Hawaii will be showcased on this photo album. Sorry but I do not know anything but the plants, such as their names, and care. These pictures are for enjoyment only.
I have tried to take the pictures with the photo tips I have read on the Internet. Remember I am a novice photographer and am learning on a new camera. I have taken a few art and composition classes and try to compose each frame when I am shooting.
All images are Creative Commons and are good for non-commerical use. No reprints for sale in anyway. Use for your online writings and blogs is okay with attribution.
Go ahead and crop or change the colors to fit your needs.

I Have No Luck with Frangipani
Many times I have tried to grow the frangipani with cuttings. We have had disasters every time. Once we have a rather large branch cutting growing well during the summer, but in the winter a frost undone everything we were doing right. It turned black and mushy.
Use These Creative Common Plumeria Images
I enjoyed the plumeria season on Maui. Everywhere I looked I saw blooming trees with popcorn like clusters of white flowers. There were a few of the color varieties but the white dominated as the favorite plumeria tree on Maui. The white was the only variety that sported the large shiny dark green leaves, so it offers dense shade as well as beauty.
