Lone Kiawe

Along the beautiful drive of Maui's Pali Highway, kiawe trees fill stretch of the coastal road. I've driven past this lone kiawe tree many times with out a second thought. One day during high tide I notice this tree on my way to Lahaina, it looked as if it was growing straight out of the Pacific Ocean. I went back for several weeks during high tide to photography this three. It is a very simple shot, however it took many attempts before I got a picture that I liked.
