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!

This weekend the trades did not blow. The sea breezes kicked in late afternoon on Saturday and the Parasailers had lift off. I was driving by with the sunset behind me, and there were three of them flying over the road right in front of me (in the reverse sunset) .. So, of course, I pulled over at the popular stop just ahead, at the top of the cliffs and then had them flying right over my head.. I think my camera attracted them, as one of them kept flying over too close to fill my frame using my 100-400mm lens.. Finally he moved off a little further away and played around through the trees and over the ocean and I captured these –
