Maluaka Calm at Prince Beach, Maui by 


It is a rare occasion when there is no wind blowing the palms, and there are enough clouds over the ocean to create a dramatic sunset at this location. I spent a week’s worth of evenings in this area before the conditions set up perfectly.

Technically this is a series of 5 long exposures layered. I was using a 10mm lens on my little Canon XTi. It worked.

This beach is in an area where there will soon be plenty of new construction, sadly. The “old” Maui is slipping away, and it breaks my heart. I hope images like this will preserve the pristine flavor for future generations.

    Randy. this presentation of the subject fits the overall image of hot water, palms, golden beaches etc. This image is stunnig, colorful and strong.
    For me it’s a bit overdone (but just a bit) and I don’t seem to like the “smuges” on the water created by (I think) the clouds (please correct me if I’m wrong).
    Overall I like this image, and my friend who sits next to me right now (who is a big fan of palms etc) says: “it’s beautiful”.
    best regards

  • Thanks, Oswald!
    Yes, I would work the entire thing differently today. I have already blurred the shadows on the water for my gallery prints.
    Mahalo for your great response!

    this is just an awesome sunet with great colour and mood. I think the deepness in the 5 exposures i8s great. I have never been there but it is sad to lose all thyese beautiful beaches it is happening all over the world.
