Waterfalls and Sunsets

Waterfalls and Sunsets

Today in-between on and off again rain, I managed to snap some images up at Twin Falls, Up Country here in Maui. The waterfalls where super pretty, but you had to sneak around the tour groups in order to get clear pictures with out any people in them. At the end of our day, we headed back to my now favourite Ho’opkia Point to snap some sunset pictures. The clouds where super dark and stormy looking and sure enough a squall came rolling in and the wind and waves picked up in no second. Here are a selection of images from my Final day in Maui.

Road to Hana

Road to Hana

The Road to Hana is truly a crazy road filled with one lane bridges, tight corners, sharp C turns and Beautiful Waterfalls. The Road is only around 30Miles, but due to the limited speed and road conditions the road takes almost 2 hrs to navigate.

 

Here are some shots from the trekk!

JAWS

JAWS

Yesterday we ventured to JAWS! A nice early morning wake up was met with a beautiful sunrise and some killer waves. The swells where between 20-27ft or so and building. Upon arriving at Jaws, you realize how far the waves really are form the shoreline. You basically stand on a cliff overlooking the water and have to jockey for position with all the crowds and photographers that are already set up. Apparently when JAWS is going off, people fly in from all around the world to surf its swells.

I started shooting with my 300mm 2.8 lens and my Nikon D4s, but then soon realized that I needed more resolution and switched out to my Nikon D800.

It is hard to explain how amazing it looks to see massive waves rolling in and tiny little ant looking riders paddling into them unassisted.

 

Here are some pic’s from the morning!
