Kama'ole Pastel Dawn Surge by 

Shot on Kama’ole beach 2, view towards Lani island on the left and Lahaina to the right backed by the west Maui mountains, the light on the mountains is coming through the flat area of the island fro Kahului to Maalaea which just gave enough time to light up the cloud sitting over west maui forest reserve.

Shot on a Nikon D700, 17-35mm Nikkor lens, Cokin ND8 grad, warming filter. processed in Photoshop and photo matrix.

Hi, Kia Ora from New Zealand, i have recently moved to Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. I have spent the last thirty years taking photos, I love capturing images, especially ones that only I saw, only I was silly enough to get up at that time to catch the sunrise, photography is a wonderful thing, capture an image and you preserve the moment forever, miss it, and its lost forever.

Hope that you enjoy these images.

    I love the frame and the shot.

  • Thanks Travis, it’s becoming a signature shot for me, the others that you have seen from here I have printed out on canvas at 1400mm wide and they look sensational.

    I’ve been considering a similar technique lately with some of my landscapes – what a beautiful job you’ve made of this. Very effective.
