Maui waves, trees, and rainbows

We spent some time on the Hawaiian island of Maui. We went on the road to Hana, stayed in Hana, and spent some time in Lahaina, Paia, and Haleakala National Park.

The first 30 pictures (this page) are of waves, trees, and rainbows on Maui. The next 22 photos (found here ) are of flowers and wildlife on the island. It's incredibly gorgeous! Like most of my photos, they don't do justice to the area - you'll just have to go there yourself.

Some of the photos, especially those of waves or raibows, might look redundant. I had a hard time narrowing down the number of shots to display.

The wind bending the trees in parallel makes the rainbow look even cooler.
These are bamboo trees in Haleakala National Park.
Waves crashing against rocks are pretty common on Maui.
I think it would be a lot of fun to surf these waves.
Rainbows over the water looked quite striking.
These rocks are at Black Sand Beach in Wai'anapanapa State Park.
I'm not sure what kind of tree this is, but I love the roots.
These waves are from Ho'okipa Beach in Paia.
Another nice rainbow, on the way to Haleakala National Park.
Some of the rainbows were very clear and very bright.
These look-alike trees are in Ko'olau Forest Reserve.
This beach is near Ahihi Cove.
I really like the little curl at the top of this wave.
There's a somewhat clear double-rainbow in this photo.

I like the effect of the wave crashing against this rock.
To me, this looks like the rainbow is shooting into the cloud.
Whereas this rainbow looks as if it's shooting into the earth.
These are rainbow eucalyptus trees, in Ko'olau Forest Reserve.
I think this shows a little bit of the power of the waves in the ocean.
More waves smashing against more rocks
The height of this tree is perfect, making it look like an umbrella stem.
Watching the splashing never gets old.
This banyan tree, in Lahaina Banyan Court Park, spans 1.94 acres, and is more than 60 feet tall. The people on the benches give an idea of the scale.
More amazing waves hitting more amazing lava rocks
I think this is a typical Maui scene - a rainbow behind a palm tree.
Another clear rainbow. I hope it's obvious why I had a hard time choosing between these photos.
Banyan trees have aerial roots, or prop roots, that hang from the branches.
Why not end with even more waves smashing even more rocks?
