When I first got to the Grand Wailea hotel on Maui, I knew I was in for a treat, photographically speaking. It’s just a beautiful property. I knew I would be shooting some sunrise shots, and due to the time change it was pretty easy to get up. In fact, I was up about 3 hours too early for sunrise. Oh well, that’s what caffeine is for.
I headed out that first morning and immediately set up here by the big pool. I love reflections, and having still water like a pool all to yourself works out great, especially when it’s super early and the only other sounds you hear are the waves crashing on the beach behind you. That’s a pretty awesome way to start a day!
