I posted a few images from my trip to Maui earlier this year, however, I realized that I have not posted many of the images I took during a trip to Maui last year. I was there to attend a wedding and it coincided with my rekindled interest in photography (for about the 10th time).  This time, however, it stuck and I’ve been doing something related to photography daily (especially now that I have a daily blog). It was during a drive in the northwest side of the island that I encountered this small church. It did not appear that it was an active church since the inside of the church was in bad shape.  What caught my attention was the vibrant colors and how well the green paint coordinated with the red tile roof.

Kahakuloa, Hawaii, is a very small town on the northern side of Maui. There is not much there but a couple of churches, banana bread stands and a gallery. The most important historical event was that one of Maui’s rulers, Kahekili, son of Kekaulike Kalani-nui-Kui-Hono-i-Kamoku (say that three times real fast), would jump from nearby Kahakuloa Head, 200 feet into the ocean each morning before breakfast.  There is a spot there named after him (“Kahekili’s Leap”). That’s not my idea of something to do before breakfast.  Perhaps if email did not exist I would do something more exciting but definitely not jump 200 feet into the ocean every morning…


The Church at Kahakuloa

This image was taken with my Sony Alpha a7S using my Sony FE 24-70mm f/4 Lens set on 32 mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/9, shutter speed at 1/160th of a second and the ISO set at 100.  Processing was done in Lightroom and Photoshop.
