Fire in the Sky – Molokai Hawaii



I am just back from a wonderful experience in Hawaii, where I was invited to co-lead a workshop with National Geographic photographer Jonathan Kingston and special guests Dewitt Jones and Rikki Cooke. The workshop took place at the Hui Hooolana on the island of Molokai. The “Hui” is owned by Rikki and his wife Bronwyn and is simply amazing. They have organized a staff that was extremely attentive to our needs and food that was off the charts!  And of course the photography was grand. 

The posted image is from the east end of the island, taken as we were making our way back from our visit to Halawa. 

If you are interested in joining us next year, the dates are October 24-30. The official listing will be up on my and Jonathan’s website before the end of the year. Many from this year are coming back, so it will fill up quickly!

Sorry for the brief post, however, my desk is full of things to get caught up on. More to come!
