Makena Cove Sunset

Makena Cove Sunset

The sun sets behind Lana’i in soft hues of pink and yellow as the tide washes ashore and then retreats, leaving a trail of white motion. From South Maui’s Makena Cove you can see Molokini islet a few miles in the offing and the beach is surrounded by alternating jagged black lava and fine golden sand.

Sunsets here are complimented with a breeze coming from the channel between the islands that gives the water a darker sheen. The rugged shoreline breaks up each wave as it meets the shore and creates swirls and eddies of sand.

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!
