"Hoku Sunrise Canoes"

Photographer: Mark Middleton
Location: Wailea Beach

Part of a magical moon set sunrise ceremony led by the Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce in October of 2009. Twelve canoes, are escorted by the seafaring canoes of Hokulea and Mokulele. A canoe, one from each moku (district) on Maui carrying an elder bearing a special stone to place upon an altar on the beach.

This is HDR shooting, special multiple exposures to capture the many colors present on this glorious morning.
