Waianapanapa means, 'glistening waters' and they are not kidding!   There are many ways to photograph this black sand beach near Hana, Maui.  But it takes a while to see the opportunities.  In this moment, the sand was briefly wet and reflected the last glowing light from the clouds above.  It took a while for a wave to break just when the sand was glowing.  I tried for 5 minutes before the timing was right.  A few minutes later the light was gone for the day.
