Hana Highway

Struggling to come up with words to describe one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The island of Maui is stunning! The Hana Highway is stunning times ten!

I’m afraid these images don’t do the place any justice. You would have to add the sound of the ocean, birds, waterfalls and the local Hawaiian radio station blasting in the car. You would have to smell the flowers in the air and feel the warm breeze while eating a piece of fresh banana bread. You would have to have your shirt off, sunglasses and flip flops on with the AC cranked. Maybe best for your to go there and see it for yourself.

Home now, back to reality. At least in body.

Paradise is somewhere down there.

    It is true that there is nothing better than checking directly the beauty and quality of things and places. However, these images, with its delicate blur, allow the viewer to be a very good idea of the quality of the place and allow the imagination of the sensations to be felt in the site.
    Excellent image quality. Excellent photographic eye.

    Stunning! I was on Maui last June for a wedding (see my blog’s header pic) and unfortunately we didn’t have time to make it on the road to Hana. Seeing these makes me want to go back and spend more than 3 days! Thanks for sharing.

    Stunning photos! The “Bridge of Three Bear Falls” is breathtaking not just for the person standing on the bridge looking down. Did you enhance the photos? The light is just magical. -Kirsten

    These photos are GORGEOUS! The last time I vacationed in Hawaii, I was 15. It reminds me why people love it so much. Thanks for sharing!

  14. NANsee Says:

    These are amazing photos! I love the way the natural lighting hits everything
    I wish I had the chance to go when I was there.

  15. hannahfergesen Says:

    Stunning. Absolutely stunning. Can’t wait to go to Hawaii!

  16. Dorian Wacquez Says:

    Say, these are great photographs and there is something surreal about them, no? Something with the colors almost makes them look like they were made on the computer, haha.

    Anyhow, I really like the one outside of the pork taco shop. So much so that I was hoping that i could use it on my website as the “inspiring Image of the Week” Would you mind? Naturally you would be given credit and a link would be made back to your blog.

    Keep it up!

    Sincerely,

    Great photos. The road to Hana was an amazing journey for us as well. My advice is: volunteer to drive as riding in the backseat on that road one may need a barf bag.

  21. kophiebeans Says:

    so pretty… you live a good life there. 🙂

  22. Rohit Says:

    Absolutely beautiful pics.

  23. Jessley Says:

    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos. Your pics remind me very much of New Zealand with its breathtaking beauty and rugged country. It also has the black sand beaches on the western side of the north island and stunning white sand on the eastern shoreline. If you can make it there, a trip to NZ would be well worth your while.

  24. theteacher174 Says:

    wow. These are some amazing pictures. They give me ideas for when I go to Hawaii sometime in the near future

    I love your work, Jason. I am enrolled in the Axia College of the University of Phoenix (online school) and I would like to use the picture of the saguaro from the Arizona collection for the HTML expansion for school. of course, I will give credit were credit is due, including a link back to your site.

    Absolutely beautiful pictures. I am taking my family on a Hawaiian cruise in April of next year. Maui is one of our stops and we plan to drive this road. Is the road past Lindburgh’s grave as bad as people say?
