I’ve decided to participate in the 1-Day Blue Photo Challenge. As an instructor and instructional coach, I often encourage and require students and workshop participants to keep a journal in order to reflect on their teaching experiences. Now, I’ll put into practice what I preach. Stay tuned.
Love the swap meet in Kahului – where artists, vendors, and farmers set up shop to sell their goods. We returned to find our two artist “friends” – Kai Chow and Jes Murthi – and purchased honu necklaces from Kai! And, of course, we purchased apple bananas!
Then we were on our way to the Iao Valley! We walked around the grounds of the state park and enjoyed the foliage and rushing streams of mountain water.
We returned to the condo for a late afternoon meal before walking to the beach for the sunset!
The northwest portion of Maui offers beautiful vistas, as well as opportunities for snorkeling, swimming, and surfing. On our way, we noticed another brush fire on Honoapiilani Highway near Olowalu.
We stopped at Honolulu Bay for some snorkeling, although it was not as clear and robust as Lana’i. After a little bit of snorkeling we headed further north to the Nakalele Point and Blowhole. Our hike out to the point was short but rugged; well worth the trip.
We headed south to find the Kapalua Coastal Trail for a 3+ mile hike along the rugged northwest coast. Below are some of the pictures from yesterday’s adventure.
On our way home to Kihei, the brush fire was still burning, even more area was burning and smoldering! It’s been dry in this area, and when the fires cross the highway, there is no other way to get in or out of West Maui!
We decided to have dinner out at Da Kitchen, a casual joint with traditional Hawaiian style grinds such as Kalua pork.
Tomorrow, it’s back to the Swap Meet and then to ‘Iao Valley.
Here are a few of my latest images taken with a macro lens and an iPhone 5!
Ben, you’ve inspired me to post to today’s theme: Abstract! I’ve been experimenting with a micro lens that I have for my iPhone camera.
A common spring flower and wildflower – close up of the stamens of each flower. Two different views of the same piece of coral. These close images transform these photographs of otherwise ordinary elements in our environment.
