Shot at Pa’ako beach, Makena, Maui (AKA, Secret Cove, Wedding Beach) Makena, Maui the night before we left, just had to have one more visit to this magical cove, this is paradise, you can keep your white sand beaches, give me the pure gold sands of Makena any day. When the sun sets everything gets the most sensational warm golden glow.

Shot on a Nikon D700, 17-35mm Nikkor lens, Cokin ND4/2 grads, warming filter, processed in photomatrix and photoshop.

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.
