Molokai East Side Fields

Green Fields of Molokai

Moloka’i is one of Hawai’i’s lesser traveled islands, often photographed in the background of pictures taken from the island of Maui. Like all the Hawaiian islands, Molokai has its own feel. Here you will find an easy, relaxed pace to everything, beautiful wide-open spaces, and few roads.

The 2000 census estimated Moloka’i’s population to be around 7,000 people. Moloka’i’s low population, deep Hawaiian tradition, and management have created pristine, breathtaking landscapes. On the eastern half of the 38-mile by 10-mile wide island, where this picture was taken, the land is green and lush, a high plateau reaching to the summit in the Molokai Forest Reserve at 4,900 feet high. Used largely for farming and grazing, the entire area has a wonderfully pastoral feel that is well-captured by this shot.

About Rob DeCamp

I am a professional photographer living on Maui, in the State of Hawaii. I made my living shooting weddings, but now have shifted my energy to nature photography. What started as a hobby, has now become my passion. I love to explore nature, and capture the ever changing colors and shapes that I find. No matter how many times I go back to the same place, it never is the same. The lighting, the weather all change to give me a different feeling. I think that is what inspires me to keep shooting!
