The St. Joseph Church in Kaupo, Maui, Hawaii is the oldest church on Maui and was established in 1862.
This image essentially took me over two years to successfully complete and was seen in my mind's eye long before I could show it to you here in a photograph. There is only a small window of time each year in which the Milky Way is in an optimal position above this old church. Kaupo is over 2 hours drive from my house in Lahaina and is located in the most rustic part of Maui where there isn't even a proper road. The final challenge was with the painting-of-light that I used to illuminate the church. Using a small flashlight, it was much too easy to give too little, too much, or not even-enough light which resulted in many failed attempts before capturing this powerful and ethereal scene.
