This particular day I was headed up from the south shore to the west side to go shoot sunset. At least that was the plan anyway. While heading out of North Kihei I looked in the rear view mirror to see Haleakela clear of clouds. Woah. All of a sudden I had a tough choice of trying to figure out where to shoot. I pulled over and debated a bit then hustled back to an area I had thought had a lot of potential. Careful exploring around it was difficult to settle on a composition I liked best. Always happens when I shoot a composition-rich area for the first time. Bouncing between two spots I spent well over an hour barefoot in the ankle deep water watching and shooting the change in light between sunset to nightfall. This particular image of the earth shadow rising behind the volcano caught me upon review. I’m always a sucker for those deep blues and magentas!
Much thanks and enjoy!
