The more I look back at these photos, the more I want to get back to Hawaii for some real exploration. There are so many spots just on Maui that I didn’t get to explore fully – or explore at all. Next time 🙂
The beach at our condo complex was amazing. A decent amount of shade if you wanted it and surf just big enough for some quality boogie boarding. Oh, and these rocks made for some great photo opportunities.
Two more shots from our beach – gotta love the palm tree silhouette.
We were staying in Kihei, and one day I decided to venture as far south as the road would take me – I ended up at this location. Amazing, rugged volcanic rock formations created an amazing bit of low coastline.
When Brei and I stopped at the black sand beach past Hana, the first thing we noticed was a crazy person swimming out in the aggressive surf of the small inlet. He must’ve been almost 200 yards out when we got there, and we watched him battle the surf all the way back in. Amazing.
The road to Hana is truly one of the most beautiful drives I’ve ever taken. The long, windy road takes you through some amazing rainforest. Mike – this one’s for you 🙂
I posted a similar shot yesterday – this is another from the west side of the island between Kihei and Lahaina.
This is a view looking inland from the volcanic south west coast you saw above. The dark rock, scrubby brush, and low cloud was irresistible.
This grove of trees is above the black sand beach. The fisheye yielded an interesting result.
A little ways south of Wailea I came across this tiny moon-shaped inlet. I could have easily spent a couple hours just sitting on these rocks enjoying the view in silence.
For most of the week I was there we were treated to less than ideal sunsets. Thankfully, on our last night this happened. The photography gods were smiling on me that night.
