High Surf Morning

Big waves provided a high surf morning of photography as many gathered on the bluffs to watch the exhibition of Nature. Wave heights were reached around 30 feet in this location, which is just north of Ho’okipa Beach Park, which was closed, due to high surf danger. The photos here have been processed through some art filters to give them a softer slightly more etherial and watercolor effect.

Makena Shoreline

The Makena Shoreline on the south side of Maui is a beautiful, scenic, picturesque area. In the video below you can get a bird’s eye view through the lens of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), aka, a drone.

Aerial Views of La Perouse Bay

 

La Perouse Bay on Maui’s south shore is a fantastic area for kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and sightseeing; with its many inlets and coves amidst the lava, the aerial, and underwater, scenery is beautiful. Using a DJI Phantom drone, I was able to get high above the area and showcase the rugged and beautiful landscape of this popular area of Maui. La Perouse Bay got it’s name from Jean-Franois de Galoup, Comte de La Prouse, a French explorer. He was the first European to set foot on Maui in 1786. The lava flow which makes up the area is one of Hawaii’s most recent (1788), save the current active lava flow of Kilauea on the Big Island.

Hawaiian Monk Seal

Every once in a while a Hawaiian Monk Seal will be seen resting on a local beach. They typically remain for a day or two, and then take off. They are not at all active during these resting periods, but can be a sight worth seeing….
