On the Beaches of Maui HI
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
On the Beaches of Maui HI
On the Beaches of Maui HI
Second Place - April 2012
*Nature and Landscapes*
With every trip to Maui I leave a little piece of myself behind. The weather, the scenery, the fabulous beaches and the swaying palms provide a beautiful place to holiday and a photographer's dream.

Heather, when people say a photo is "postcard-perfect", they are talking about scenes as stunning as this!
Love the composition and pov, and the way the ocean colors change as the water goes from shallow to deep.
WINNER!!!
