Swoosh, Maui

Along the twisty road on Highway 340, we spotted a local roadside stand where fresh produce was being offered. At the same time, this was a wonderful isolated beach where local Surfers were taking care of the amazing waves. Kathleen took care of business to get the most tastey Pineapple which probably recently harvested. She asked, “Is this a good one?” to which the proprietor said, “They are ALL good”…and they were. In the mean time Erik was scoping the beach for a shot. The waves were amazing and surfers were abound. The reason you don’t see them is that we used a long shutter speed – they just disappear.

This was shot with a Nikon D7000, Sigma 10-20mm Lens, Variable Neutral Density Filter, Manfrotto Tripod and a lot of fun. Thanks for visiting our Humble PhotoBlog! If you have any questions just drop us an email at!

Happy Hollidays!  Kathleen and Erik

    I love your pictures! Only thing…. pineapples don’t grow on trees. A common misconception. Please, keep posting your work!

    I LOVE Maui! Was there in 2010 and am now envious that I didn’t “stop”, observe and get a beautiful shot like this..

    Happy New Year!
