Pa'ako golden surge by Ken Wright

Last light at Pa’ako beach, Makena, Maui, (AKA, Secret Cove, Wedding Beach) this is such a stunning location.

Shot on a Nikon D700, 17-35mm Nikkor lens, Cokin ND8/2 grads, warming filter, processed in photomatix and photoshop.

Hi, Kia Ora from New Zealand, i live in sunny 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.
