Giant Cloud and a Boat

Or - Cane Burning on Maui and the Maui Cruiseship

Driving down Haleakala into town a couple weekends ago we were greeted by this massive cloud. It was pretty amazing and even beautiful if only it wasn't generated by cane burning :\ We see clouds from cane burning all the time..but this one just seemed more massive and poofy and more white even. Maybe I was just closer to it, I don't know. These pictures make it seem smaller...don't really show how awesome looking it was..I guess its one of those "you had to be there"





Here you can see it generating from the ground..over near Paia where they must have been burning...








and this was the next mornings drive down the hill..we could see the cruiseline ship coming in from all the way up the hill...

What is cane burning? Is it a good thing or a bad thing?
Gorgeous shots, probably can't get a bad picture when the views are so spectacular. I might have to live somewhere beautiful again someday.
