The road to Hana

If you ever visit the Island of Maui in the Hawaiian Islands, you will have the opportunity to travel one of the the greatest scenic routes in the world, the Hana highway which goes from east of Kahului near the center of Maui to the Town of Hana, about 50 miles in all.

The road travels the eastern coast in an area of sheer cliffs and gorgeous forest. Since it faces the trade winds, it receives a high level of annual rainfall, and has a large number of fabulous waterfalls, as well as providing the common sight of rainbows. You will also be likely to experience some beautiful sunshine as well, as the clouds of rain can quickly pass. In the center of the image above, you can see a line rainclouds on the horizon while the sun shines brightly.

  3. Absolutely stunning shots! I drove the road to Hana in 2011 and it was truly beautiful. I got some great shots of my own, but frankly they pail in comparison to yours, you were clearly there at the right time of day while I was fighting with the light.
