The sun peaks through a layer dense clouds, illuminating the coarse surface of Waimea Pier.
A lone tree sits stoically on a secluded beach on the North Shore of Maui. A long exposure adds a dramatic feel to the scene by smoothing the shore break and by capturing the movement of the clouds through the sky. Paia Bay, Maui
I found this amazing cave just a few hundred yards away from one the busiest beaches on Maui. I was really surprised when I found it because I have never seen pictures of it before or heard anyone talk about the cave. I was immediately drawn to it, and I had to get a picture of the sunset from within cavern. The darkened cave became slightly illuminated as the sun moved closer to the horizon. With just the right amount of light to add definition to the dark rock walls, I took a picture as wave crashed on the sand. A few moments later the sun disappeared below the horizon and the darkness filled the cave once again.
