Maui Sunset

As some of you may know, I was in Maui all of last week for my best bud’s wedding. I’d never been before and couldn’t have been more excited to spend some quality time with my friends and, obviously, shoot the crap out of that little island. As it turned out, I didn’t shoot quite as much as I had expected to, but I think I have a good sampling of material from all over Maui.

Now that I’m back, I figured the best way to start off the series of images is with my parting memory of Hawaii. I hadn’t shot a sunset all week (terrible, I know) but knew I had to before I left. So, on the last night, just a few hours before I was due to catch my flight home, I set up shop along the beach outside my condo and soaked in what was one of the best sunsets I have ever seen. Hands down. Please, enjoy.

Oh so gorgeous. Glad you setup shop just hours before you had to fly home. It had to be hard to leave this behind.

Just a stunning shot. Obviously the sky is rad but I love the silhouettes and framing of the tree. Fantastic.

Brian Furbush - August 9, 2011 - 7:34 am

Oh. My. God. This is absolutely sick man. The silhouetting makes this shot entirely – tree, people in the foreground, everything. That is so, so stunning.

No question, this deserves to be on a wall some where. Beautiful my friend!

Scott Wyden Kivowitz - August 9, 2011 - 7:45 am

Stunning view dude, nice shot!

Bob Lussier - August 9, 2011 - 8:14 am

Awesome. Great shot.

Chris Robins - August 9, 2011 - 9:24 am

Waui.

“Shoot the crap out of that little island”

Awesome.

Awesome shot too.

Gorgeous sky!

Such a beautiful scene! It’s been such a long time since i’ve been to Hawaii and this is making want to go back. The colors in the sky are amazing!

I think I have been on the exact beach. Is that the Konopolli (sp?) shores?

Either way it’s beautiful!

Chris Lazzery - August 9, 2011 - 11:15 am

Wow, look at that color. Must have been a beauty to watch. Can’t wait to see what else you got, man.

Randy Bayne - August 9, 2011 - 11:33 am

Absolutely fantastic. Looks like you stayed at or near the same place I did on my trip in June, or a little south perhaps. Lahaina? Was there only 5 days, and most of the shots I got were sunsets. Maui has some of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve seen, and you captured this one perfectly.

This is a beautiful image, Heath. One of your finest. I love the silhouetting too… makes it less specific and less about the people on the beach, and more about the idea of being at the beach at sunset and just taking it all in.

Scott Wood - August 9, 2011 - 4:16 pm

What a great image to link to your memories of the trip. Simply gorgeous.

Incredible sunset Heath!

Very evocative image Heath, the silhouettes of the people, though not intrusive, really add to the overall shot.

We have been to Maui about six times. I simply sit and soak in the sunsets on the West shore. These picture always look so familiar. I have seen several people comment that Maui doesn’t have good sunsets. They were always great for me … as well as all of the other locations and times of day. The only thing that was a major downer was the time we took some take-out chicken down to a nice cove but got eaten alive with some kind of voracious black flying bug. Drove us back in the car and back to Kaanapali. Almost on a par with Montana mosquitos.

Oh just stunning. The colors in the sky are magnificent. Great job Heath.

Rich Williams - August 10, 2011 - 8:13 am

Dynamite colors.

This is nice dude!
