Black Rock at Sunset, Kaanipali Beach, Maui


5" X 7"


The westernmost point of Maui is the scene of a traditional ritual each day at sunset. The torches are lit along the ridge and a native Hawaiian comes along and does a ceremony towards the setting sun, and throws the lit torches into the water, just as it's getting dark.
