From the top of Haleakala, when the clouds cooperate, looking east, one can see the 14,000 ft. summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, on the Big Island, about 100 miles away…..
Swimming around the shores of Maui one is bound to encounter a Green Sea Turtle, known as ‘honu.’ I am often swimming with a little underwater point and shoot camera just in case….Now and then, a photographic capture occurs. This particular image is also ‘photoshopped’ to give it slight painterly effect….
The light breaking through the early clouds shedding light on the life giving stream rich with history and stories of Maui….The morning flow at Iao Stream is very peaceful and calm. A wonderful place to reflect and meditate upon the day and our brief life on this earth. Here all the elements of water, earth, light and air conjoin to produce a picture, worth more than a thousand words.
