Best of Maui – Part III
Here’s my last grouping of favorite images from Jeff and my trip to Maui. The differences between all these images reflects the diversity of this island in the Pacific. Aloha!
There is such beauty in the ocean. And such life and spirit as well. This image reminds me of the power of the sea, and helps me understand the attraction it held for sailors, both past and present.
Soft Clouds on Haleakala
There is something magical about a Haleakala sunrise. Part of that is the way the clouds look at dawn – I think they look almost liquid, as you can see in this image. The foreground of the image is the actual crater, and the background is the light of the sunrise. And, in the middle, are the clouds that look so liquid, soft and peaceful.
There’s nothing quite as fun-spirited as waves gently crashing against the shore, and sending up a spray to give you an unexpected shower! It brings back thoughts of childhood, playing under the sprinkler as the lawn got watered.
This waterfall is also known as Three Bears Falls. I’m not certain why the name “bears” is included, but it certainly is a lovely waterfall along the Road to Hana in Maui, Hawaii. When the waters from the mountains are full, this series of three falls becomes one very large waterfall. However, I really like it this way. It seems much more relaxed and gentle, and fits in with the spirit of aloha.
It’s almost impossible to look at a sunflower and not smile. They are such happy and cheerful looking flowers. This image is of a field of them in Hawaii. All their petals are quite windblown, but still they manage to look perfect – certainly better than I did after being out in this breeze!
