Farewell to Maui (for now)
Best On Black. While I took many more photos over my week in paradise, I'm closing out my series (for now) with one final look at the setting sun. From this view, I am standing on the shores of Wailea beach, looking due west. The landmas to the right of the sun is west Maui. The Island of Lanai is obscured in clouds. Wailea beach has some absolutely gorgeous sunsets to behold, and every night was a surprise. This is the preferred thing to do after touring all over maui during the day.
This shot was actually taken in the remains of a late afternoon shower. I was huddled close to the ground with an umbrella propped over the camera waiting for light. While I didn't get the explosive light show I was hoping for, the end result was still quite beautiful. The sun pierced through the clouds for all of 30 seconds before it disappeared again below clouds at the horizon.
