This portrait was created near Paia, along the islands north shore. The sun had just come up and I was fortunate to be the only one out there. The view was spectacular. I selected a Nikon 16 mm fish eye lens as I wanted the curve of the lens to be a silent reminder our planet is round. The lens also has a very wide angle of view, allowing the entire scene to be enjoyed. This portrait represents Maui, for me as it features the rugged coastline of the north shore, majesty of the West Maui Mountains, and iconic palm trees.
Enjoy this and other scenic Maui images here.
