Maui Archives

I’ve been invited to showcase a selection of my images at the Maui Camera Club meeting on Monday evening. These are the 115 I have selected.

The images selected are to open discussions about photography in different topics – mainly in the world of Macro, sport and wildlife photography. From breaching whales, flying jets at air shows, flying Hawaiian stilts, monkeys, Maui waves, windsurfing, surfing and Huge huge waves. And did I mention sport photography at the 2012 London Olympics? – yep that too!

Whales have a massive muscle in their tail called the peduncle muscle, which is thought to be one of the strongest and largest muscles in the animal kingdom. I had a wonderful demonstration of this muscle in  full action recently …

IMG_7702-fbWindsurfers were out at Hookipa today, for the first time in a while. Its been a windless couple of weeks, and finally the trades kicked back in. Light Trade winds I hasten to add and also a little more from the east than usual but that did not matter. The waves were big and smooth, and the windsurfers could not resist..

Model Photoshoot in Kula, Maui, Hawaii

IMG_1878-fbI was given the chance to join in on a model photoshoot. The plan was to shoot in Haiku, on Maui’s North Shore but the storms were dumping all the rain all night and continued to do so into the morning. So we searched for the sun, and found it in Kula, up country on the slopes of Haleakala. Our model was a dream to work with and we all had a lot of fun. We found a few photogenic locations, our Kula rainbow was the first stop at the side of the road, causing a lot of passers by to slow down to check out our activities.. Standing in the middle of the road to shoot with my 100-400 lens was a bit risky though, I have to admit..

Our model was Delana Do-Wrong – and she could do no wrong! Winking smile

Dragonfly at Kealia Ponds, Maui, Hawaii

This guy was proving very difficult to capture, wish I’d snapped him coming towards me instead of flying away!Hovering Dragonfly - dragonfly_2866_8_w.jpg
