The one is an oldie – taken way back in 2007 before the most recent renovations at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua.

Also, like last week’s featured postcard, this image from Kapalua is also available in the At the Beach gallery over at Maui Wall Candy, and in the Maui Wall Candy App for iPhone and iPad as well.

Bigger than a Postcard?

If you’ve been following along with my other Maui projects, you might have already seen about the new Poster Gallery introduced over at Maui by Poster. If showcases posters from my free Maui eBook series, and something you’d surely enjoy if you haven’t seen it yet.

Today’s postcard was featured in the first eBook edition – Around Maui. As a result, the image is available to order in poster form, with the two options below:

Maui Paradise, Kapalua.

Maui Paradise.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend,

Today’s featured postcard is of one of my favorite aerial images, taken in August ’11 during a doors-off helicopter shoot. You likely have seen this image elsewhere already on one of my other sites, my aerial eBook, or even included in the cover photo artwork for the Maui Postcards page on Facebook.

In addition to being the featured postcard today, you can also order larger prints of this image over at Maui by Poster, too.

Magenta Sunset [Sunsets]

The sky lit with brilliant shades of pink and magenta.

A magenta sunset full of soft colors off the coast of West Maui.

Have you ever seen a Maui sunset with colors like this? It just goes to show you that no two sunsets in Hawaii are ever the same.

Sheraton at Black Rock [Ka’anapali]

The glow of a Maui sunset illuminates the Sheraton Maui Resort.

The warming glow of a West Maui sunset paints it’s beauty against a well-known Ka’anapali resort.

Today’s featured postcard of the Sheraton Maui Resort at dusk was also featured as the Daily Maui Photo yesterday as well.

You may remember me writing about enjoying the views of Maui’s coastline from out on the water with this postcard image, and this is just more evidence of that.

Rooms with a View

Aside from being a beautiful sight at sunset, those ocean facing rooms are also special to my wife and I because that’s where we stayed on our first of many trips to Maui, and where we fell in love with the island immediately.

In fact, the first photo I ever took of Maui was from the lanai of one of those rooms in this photo.

So I guess it might not be that much of a stretch to say had we not stayed in an ocean front room that first trip, none of what you’re reading now would exist today.

Okay, that’s a stretch. I don’t want to imply you need an ocean front room to fall in love with Maui – all it takes is one sunset…

Enjoy the week everyone,

Must See Maui [Posters]

Must See Maui poster design

A hidden waterfall in the West Maui Mountains are a must see for yourself.

Although one of the more expensive things to do on Maui, being able to see the island from above and getting to visit places otherwise inaccessible by other means is something I wish everyone would be able to enjoy at least once.

Personally, I know I am very blessed to be able to have been on multiple such journeys, enough so that I put together an entire eBook edition in my Maui by Poster series showcasing just my aerial images above Maui.

And in addition to the free eBook, you can also find many of those same images available in our Maui Postcards App in the Aerial category.

Poster Designs

The aerial association aside, today’s featured postcard comes from the Posters category in our App, and you probably have noticed a few things different with this one compared to the previous postcards we’ve featured so far.

First, well, it’s vertical (or portrait) while conventional wisdom tells us that standard postcards are oriented in a horizontal fashion – a la postal mail style.

The second is that it features text while other categories are just the beauty of Maui in all her glory.

Well, these images are from that same Maui by Poster eBook Series I just mentioned above – coming instead from the initial edition in the series.

More Posters

Be sure to check out other poster-designed postcards in our Maui Postcards App, as well as all the poster designs in the free Maui by Poster eBook, Volume 1.

And if you’d like a poster for yourself, don’t miss the Order Prints page and put some Aloha on your wall!

Have a great weekend, and see you back here soon for another featured postcard.
