We did the long winding road to Hana while enjoying a weeks vacation in Maui. Many love to stay on the sandy shorelines on the western side of Maui, but I have to admit that the Hana side is filled with the rugged side of nature in all its beauty. This particular location is along the shorelines where the red sand beach is located and I managed to find this still pool of sea water along the shore. Hope you like it...enjoy.
On note of post processing I must confess to using Photomatix HDR software being employed to create this kind of image. This explains why the sky is much darker than the reflection in the water.

Très belle photo, le miroitement du ciel et des nuages est superbe.
Bie vu avec la présence humaine qui donne vie à cette composition.

a little curious treatment by photo
clouds reflected in water is brighter than the source

I also prefer such a landscape than just sandy beaches. wonderful reflection of sky in the shallow water. I like the splashes of ocean. Very attractive composition. Splendid atmosphere of the remote place.

I really like this image, very beautiful the stark contrast between the rough seas and a mirror of water where there are reflections, very nice light and colors and of course the sky and its reflections....nice one...
have a good day...

Also when use you HDR your picture is very nice.
I think that man takes risks middle of the rock with the waves very close.
Excellent composition, nice depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Hi Paul ,
great picture with an excellent composition, and POV, very dramatic the sky and I particularly like the human presence walking on the rocks!
