Morning Glory

Morning Glory

The beach at Wailea in beautiful Maui was breathtaking.

It wasn’t just the beautiful resorts and the beautiful people that were breathtaking. The beach itself was gorgeous.

Significant parts of the beach were covered with vines of morning glory. At first I was not sure whether these were planted or native. I got my answer later when I discovered that even on remote stretches of beach, not just in Hawaii but on many tropical beaches, these flowers thrive.

Thanks to high-definition TV, I actually spotted them in several different locations where the TV series Survivor was filmed.

I used a white umbrella to reduce the contrast and maintain proper daylight color balance. One feature of good composition was provided naturally by the sand: simplicity.
