Our big family vacation the summer of 2015 was to Maui, Hawaii. It is my mother's favorite place on the whole planet, and we try to check in every two years to the Kihei Beach Resort and relax in the tropical breezes. Life slows down something marvelous, island time takes over, and we watch sunset after sunset from our balcony.
One of my all-time favorite places to visit on this planet is O’heo Gulch. The waterfalls and freshwater pools of the gulch are part of the Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park. They can be accessed by driving 12 miles past the town of Hāna, on the famous Hāna Highway that circumscribes the northeast coast of the island of Maui. Unless you want photos with people in them, you need to get there early (better light anyway), and then be prepared to hike into some deep water on slippery rocks with your gear.
This gallery is a collection of images from this trip as well as the one two years ago. It's a mix of images from the West, South and East sides of Maui, and includes a couple with alternate infrared and solarization techniques. Enjoy!
