Kiawe Tree Sunset
Photograph by Aaron Lynton
The sun nears the horizon to set behind Lana’i and the Pacific ocean. Strategically pictured behind a Kiawe tree as it dips low, the sun ignites the sky into orange hues, filling the island of Maui with lingering warmth and signals of a clear evening to come.
The silhouetted kiawe tree is bare of leaves, revealing its thorny nature, a contrast to the softening in the background.
We love Maui sunsets and try to catch as many as we can. We hope you do too.
