The Dry Side

One of the most amazing things about Maui is the extremely diverse ecosystem. On one tiny island you can find rainforest full of ridiculous waterfalls, rugged coastline with aggressive surf, dry, arid hillsides with scrubby brush, and gorgeous white sand beaches. And all of this can be seen during a days worth of driving. Crazy.

Today’s shot is from the drier, west side of the island just south of Lahaina.

Wow, hard to believe that’s Maui.

This is something I did not do, shoot the dry land. Did not expect this to be Maui when I opened this up. Totally different shot which I dig.

Not what I expected from Hawaii – pretty cool shot Heath. Keep ’em coming!

Wow, you can really feel the dryness. I agree with the other comments: Maui? really? Great shot.

This is a wonderful shot! I love the textures and the complexity of the colors in this photo! Well done! It’s hard to believe this is Hawaii!

Totally, the big island is even more stark. Thanks for getting me to the isles a bit today!

Nice shot. Love how they all seem to just roll along.

What did you do to Hawaii? Did you break it?

Seriously. I forgot you were there. When I opened it, I thought it was somewhere in Arizona.

Great shot. Love the light and tones.

Love the shadow being casted on the mountains, really makes the image look a bit dramatic and yet subtle at the same time. Great job! 🙂

Really interesting! I spent 2 years in Waikiki with the navy and always was amazing by the diverse ecosystem there. Wonderful shot!
