. Aloha Steve . . you sent me a note on facebook and asked me if I had any images of Papalaua . . so I asked Jacob to go with me that very evening to shoot sunset . hoping to capture something beautiful for your special request . . when we arrived and walked along the beach as I searched for a nice composition we came upon a beach party . . someone had brought along a truck and pulled a flat bed trailer to set up and use as a stage . . there were hammocks swaying in the wind . . we listened to wonderful live music as the band members performed while everyone relaxed and enjoyed the music . . several people had campfires going and were grilling . the children and dogs were playing nearby me as I braced myself and my tripod to try and keep it stabilized . I was standing on a slope and the sand kept shifting beneath me . after only a few minutes my feet were buried over my ankles in the sand yet my tripod continued to shift . it was a challenge holding it steady while my shutter was open . . . I enjoyed so much listening to the children's laughter as they were swept around in the waves . their mothers dancing on the beach in the beautiful evening light . . we were all dazzled by the colours . . Jacob enjoyed a nice meal by the campfire . . there was a cool breeze and the surf was very strong . . as the sun began setting the sky was illuminated with the most amazing shades of soft blue . lavender and pink . over Lahaina behind me the horizon was golden . Haleakala was illuminated in lovely shades of pastel colours . I was imagining how wonderful this would appear from the summit at 10,000 feet . . that would be a night to remember . . it was so magical . . I am deeply grateful you enjoy it so much and have purchased one of my prints . . Thank you so much for your gift of Aloha . I truly appreciate your kindness and hope you are delighted with your purchase . . Papalaua is one of your favourite beaches and soon you will be able to enjoy some time here . . you said you and your wife will be here on Maui in a couple of weeks . . Jacob and I would love to meet you so please send me a message and let us know when you arrive . . I wish you safe journey . . Aloha mai e . . .

Well done, Sharon ! Congrats on another sale !!

Lovely seascape and gorgeous pastel tones. Great work, Sharon.

Sharon Mau replied:

. it was one of the most beautiful sunsets we have seen in quite some time . so amazing everyone was talking about it on channel 2 news . I felt blessed to have witnessed it . the entire sky was this lovely soft pink and lavender and Haleakala looked so beautiful from Papalaua . . it was such fun standing knee deep in the powerful waves trying to hold my tripod steady for a long exposure and the golden sand is deep and luxurious . Papalaua is a popular beach for families and friends to enjoy and evening out with their children and pets . . fishermen were nearby also . . I am delighted you enjoy it Steve . Aloha ;)
