PHOTOCONTESTBack in February, we started a photo contest, open to anyone taking a tour between February and April. We had a blast in the office checking out all of the photos that guests sent us. It’s really fascinating to see what inspires our guests while they join us on our luxury Maui tours. As April came to a close, we had a challenge picking our top three—but we did it! Check them out below.

Waianapanapa Wave – James C.firstplace

Wow! This photo really took our breath away. We love the brilliant green against the stunning sapphire blue of the Pacific Ocean. This photo gives you a true sense of how powerful the ocean can be—you can almost miss the couple standing on the ancient lava flow. Congratulations, James! You’re our first prize winner!

The Road – Carolyn M.secondplace

Carolyn’s photo was one of my personal favorites. The contrast between the road and the natural flora surrounding it is really striking, and you can see how the famous Road to Hana works with the terrain, not against it. This unique photo earned Carolyn second place in our contest.

Haleakala – Arun C.thirdplace

This beautiful shot of Haleakala captures it absolutely perfectly. Notice the variations in the soil color, the stark, desert-like landscape, and the clouds lying below the dormant volcano’s summit. Arun’s Haleakala shot really makes you feel like you’re right there, “on top of the world,” in the House of the Sun. Congratulations on your third place win, Arun!
