The Cliffs

Yesterday I had a sudden urge to revisit the images I took while in Maui earlier this year. By no means have I posted all the images I’d like to from that trip, so as it continues to get colder here in Calgary I’ll likely post a few more of these shots to try to warm myself up 🙂

This shot is just down from a roadside pullout about halfway between Kihei and Lahaina. The view from the top is quite nice, but just a short journey down the hill led to some much better views of these awesome cliffs. This was a stunning spot in the middle of the day, so I’m sure it would have been than much more amazing during sunset – but I never made it back.

This is a 3 exposure panorama using the shift capabilities of the Canon 24mm tilt/shift lens. Such a great lens and such an easy way to create panoramas – one day I may add that lens to my bag permanently.

Equipment:
Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II

Really great pano Heath – gotta add one of those bad boys on my next trip 🙂

Nice pano. You’ll really enjoy those Maui pics when it’s cold and blowing snow in Calagry this coming winter:)

Love how the pano adds to the expanse of the ocean. Its only a matter of time until you buy that bad boy.

I love that tilt-shift lens. I didn’t want to give it back after I got back from Banff. Wonderful pano! The TS makes panos so easy and seamless!

Wonderful shot Heath. Its getting colder here in Toronto too so this is a welcome image.

Great Pano. Great location too.

Beautiful pano framing, Heath. The smooth sea and rough terrain makes for a great composition.
