Honolua Bay, Maui

This was our first trip to the beautiful island of Maui. We have explored several of the other islands in the past, and this one has its own unique character (as they all do). We were staying just a few miles south and were amazed by the spectacular sunsets, something we only see in Southern California before or after a Winter Storm. On the Islands, Windward conditions are often harsh, windy, rainy and lush with tropical goodness. Leeward is calm, warm and just perfect for snorkilng, or just hanging out.

This image was composed after a visit earlier to scope the concept. We later returned next day when we saw clouds. When the sun sets, the entire spectrum of colour will appear. It starts with the yellows, transitions to oranges, purples and blues. (I could explain this in details as an Engineer – just drop an email).

We scrambled over the Volcanic Rocks which are very abrasive and could cause severe lacerations, to find the one perfect image. The sun had almost set and it was getting dark for the trek back. Regarding Photography Tips, this was executed with a Nikon D7000, Sigma 10-20mm Lens, Singh Ray Variable Density Filter, Manfroto Tripod and random rock worthy flip flops!
