Feeling gloomy

I apologize for the lack of photos over the last two weeks. I ended up with the "crud" which kept me in bed for several days and that in turn, put me behind at work by several days which created a chain reaction of being behind in everything else.

A panorama of Lahaina

I took this photo about a third of the way up the side of one of the volcanoes on Maui looking back towards the island of Lana'i and over the top of the town of Lahaina. I was hoping for a better sunset but all in all it still wasn't bad. You just don't get bad sunsets on Maui!

This is 11 shots taken vertically and then stitched together in Photoshop.

Taking a nap

I came across this turtle taking a nap one day while I was out snorkeling.

From the surface of the water I could see a small cave about 12 feet down so I took a deep breath and swam down to take a peek inside. I was surprised to find the honu (Hawaiian green sea turtle) laying on the sandy bottom getting some rest. He was all the way to the back, apparently so some idiot tourist like myself wouldn't bother him.

I snapped a few photos and then headed back to the surface to get some air. I found a couple of small caves like this in the same area and they both had turtles resting in them. I will definitely be going back!

This really was a relaxing moment. 

All I had to do was sit back and enjoy my cocktail because my wife was taking the photos during this sunset. She has a new Nikon D750 and this trip to Hawai'i was her first chance to really get out and use it some.

Now I just have to see if I have the patience to teach her all of the bells and whistles!
