Shoots & Ladders is a place in Maui I was lucky enough to visit. This is my Photo+Video adventure, all documented by me. The video is long, and may be boring for you some at times, but this one was for me, so skip around if you'd like.
Scaling over 300 ft down the side of an island to swim in the tidal pools below was an invigorating experience. I'm not that guy, but it really was spiritual.
For a few minutes down there alone, it was my perfect place.
The video has 3 parts. Part 1 follows the car ride to Shoots & Ladders. The road is filled with twists & turns and beautiful scenery. I captured most of it from atop a Jeep Wrangler XL with the Canon 5DMarkII.
The second part is the Descent down to the tidal pools and back up. I captured this with a Canon Powershot G11 with underwater housing & strobe.
The third part is a photo montage documenting a timeline of the Journey. It contains some select shots from the two trips.
The filming for this video was dangerous. I do not recommend anyone try anything in this video. I grew up across the street from Nobscot Mountain in Massachusetts, and I am an experienced climber. I made it down and up twice okay, but that's not to say it didn't get hairy, as you'll see.
So please sit back and enjoy, and leave the crazy stuff to me.
