Haleakala Sunrise at 10,000 feet

is the dormant volcano that towers over eastern Maui. At 10,200 feet, nearly the entire island is in view. One must begin the drive at 3 AM to watch the sunrise from the edge of the earth. The foreground ridge is draped in clouds that hover at 7000 feet. Unlike Maui at sea level, high winds and 40 degree weather dominate the crater. This photo was taken on Saturday at f16 for 10 seconds.
