Hookipa Sunrise, Maui

Hookipa Sunrise, Maui

The sun rises over Ho’okipa beach, bringing the West Maui Mountains into relief while illuminating restless waves winding through lava rock and warming the soft golden sand.

Striations in purplish clouds in the sky above reveal early morning signs of strong winds on the way–typical for Maui and especially this famous northern-facing beach. Here, the early-bird is blessed with calm conditions, while late-comers see the wind blown peaks of waves being ridden by kite surfers. For now though, the island awakes gently and invites us to enjoy another opening scene.

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!
