The Beauty of Maui

October 21, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

As the plane was on final I looked across the seats to my limited view out the window and saw flat farmlands.  Hmm, not too impressive I thought.  The ride in the rental car did not impress me too much either as we drove to the northwest coast, but then................wow!  The beautiful coastline, the blue water, palm trees and sand sort of smacked me in the face and woke me up.  I already live in a beautiful part of the world.  South Florida is known for its sub-tropical climate and beautiful scenery.  Hawaii, however is in a league of its own.

As soon as we checked into the resort, I was already checking the condition of my camera gear.  My trusty Nikon D600 full frame camera had two fresh batteries and the lenses were clean and ready to go.  I even brought my SB910 flash.  Of course this trip was not all about photography.  After all, I was here to get married.  This was going to be tricky.  How was I suppose to balance the photo opportunities of a lifetime and not get in trouble with the future Mrs. Remas?  That fine line would be tested.

For the next 7 days I took just under 400 photos on my camera and a few dozen on my iPhone.  To me it seems like I really scaled back.  The next time I go to Maui, I will make photography my priority.  The amount of scenic shots are countless and I would recommend a photography themed trip to anyone.  By the way, I did get married, hired a wedding photographer ( how weird was that being on the other side of the lens)

Anyway, please enjoy a sampling of some of my Maui photographic journey.
