Maui: As Seen from the Skiesby Douglas Peebles (Photographer)
Just as Maui attracts a fascinating spectrum of visitors,
Maui, the second largest and second youngest of the Hawaiian Islands, is known around the world as a remarkable visitor destination. Some of the best beaches, whale-watching, sunsets, resorts and windsurfing-just to name a few of its notable attractions-are found on this island nicknamed the "Valley Isle."
Just as Maui attracts a fascinating spectrum of visitors, the island also embraces a novel mix of residents: celebrities to techies, cowboys to hula girls, and artists to businesspeople-all call Maui home and make paradise a part of their everyday life. Surrounded by natural beauty, residents enjoy both a quaint and modern life. Maui is a place where farmers grow the finest tropical flowers and onions on fertile land and where cutting-edge astronomers scan the vast Hawaiian sky.
Visitors experience Maui in all its glory and are awed. From the emerald sugar fields of the central plain to the highest peaks of Haleakala; from the rainforests of 'Tao Valley to barren lava landscapes; from miles of pristine leeward beaches to the jagged cliffs of the Hana coast- Maui is a feast for the eyes.
It is truly a unique visual banquet that Douglas Peebles serves the viewer, as he has photographed Maui from an exalted perspective. Enjoy the island as you never have before-in Maui: As Seen from the Skies.
