Maui Madness

Boogie Boarding in Maui

Okay, to come clean, work wasn’t the only reason I haven’t been posting. 🙂  Earlier this month we took a week-long vacation to Maui to enjoy the nice warm weather, water and relax.  Photography on a family vacation isn’t the easiest thing to get out and do, but I did manage to get a few decent images from the trip.  We’ll start with my daughter having a blast on the boogie board at Ulua State Beach.  In the background you can see the West Maui Mountains.  The vacation was a blast and the family had a great time.

I love this shot since it just freezes the excitement perfectly and has a decent amount of location orientation included.

    Maui??!! How awesome! And I absolutely LOVE this shot. Were you in the water with them? The picture pulls me in and makes me feel like I am enjoying the moment with them. Well done!

    • Thanks Amber! Yeah, I was about hip-deep in the water to get the shot. Everything came together with this shot.

  2. That is SUCH a cool shot!!
    I was wondering, too, if you were in the water. I would never be brave enough to take my camera into the water… not with those kinds of waves! LOL

    • I was nervous in the water, that’s for sure. I rationalized my way into it thinking that the good shots only come if you get in the middle of it. 🙂 The waves weren’t too big, it just looks that way. That specific wave was probably 1-2 feet high. 😀

    • It’s a fun place, everyone had a blast, definitely make an effort to get out there.

      Thanks much, Tracy, it’s one of my favorites. Isn’t getting wet half the fun?
