Flew out early to Maui this morning for a NY Times assignment photographing author Rebecca Walker in up-country Maui.
It’s a bit of a hassle to get to Maui sometimes as there are only a handful of direct flights from Kona, I couldn’t take one of those direct flights since I wouldn’t be able to make the morning assignment time. In the header you’ll see my view of the sunrise over Mauna Kea as I flew away from the Big Island, a beautiful sight so that was a treat for my early Maui via Honolulu hop.
I found Rebecca to be charming, intelligent with the aloha of a kamaaina. Despite the thunderstorms things went well as there was a little break in the weather while I was there.

Mahalo Rebecca for spending the time and aloha on assignment.
