This photograph might be my favorite image I have ever taken. It is not only a beautiful photograph, but a special memory of mine because my husband and I were in Maui for our 20 year wedding anniversary and I shot this from the beach in Wailea. The views of the sunsets are famous there, and were among the most breathtaking ones I’ve ever seen. After the sky burst forth in color, and the sun finally began to set, was when this tree made the perfect silhouette image.
Currently I am exhibiting this photograph at Harford Artists’ Gallery in Bel Air, Maryland through June 30th, 2019. Marriott Hotels recently asked for and received my permission to feature this image on all of their Social Media accounts, since I took this image from their resort while we were staying there. It was a huge honor to be recognized by them, and the response on Social Media has been outstanding!
I shot this image with my Canon 80D, and the settings I used were 25mm, ISO 100, 1/25 of a sec at f3.5. Prints are available upon request via email.
