    Visit Maui, HI

    I will have a 10 day vacation in Maui, HI. Any suggestions for making large format photos in Maui? I have planned to take a 4x5 Camera, BW films, 75mm, 150mm and 210mm lenses. Thanks!

    Drive the Hana Highway, carefully, lots of places to shoot waterfalls and sheer cliffs!

    My favorite place is the top of the volcano. Dramatic volcanic landscapes, few tourists. It's basically b&w anyway so that would work quite well.

    It's been a while and as I recall there were some interesting (black) rocks near beach....at the end of Hana Rd. It could be from surf pounding. The silversword plant at the top of Haleakala only grows there. Many beaches in between. Ha, it wouldn't be all that terrible if you got lost and end up at Mama's Fish House :>).

    Haleakala volcano at sunset. I didn't go for the sunrise. But I suppose that would be good too. Take a warm jacket. It gets cold up there at 10,000 feet. Shoot some color up there also.

    Once around Hana, there is a waterfall hike that passes thru a great bamboo forest.

    There were several galleries in Lahaina, but many exhibits later....that was 21yrs ago :>). Just looked up and there are 3, and even Peter Lik has one.

    Re: Visit Maui, HI

    All kinds of opportunities. I like the views up on Haleakala dawn as well as mid day. Just be aware that winds can often be intense on the higher parts of the crater, and view camera use can be tricky. The highway on the NW of the island has many rewards, but the Hana highway is slow and winding and rather rushed for a day trip; it's best to book a night or two in the Hana area itself. Forget galleries - some of the worst tourist trap trash on the planet (that applies both to paintings and especially Lik and his Fauxtoshop fakeries). .... Let me add that the mid-elevations on the mountain, as you drive up, can have spectacular lighting and wonderful views. Reminds me of the vivid green ranch lands near here in Marin County. I also
    like taking shoreline shots of lava and surf where we stay at Napili.
