Haleakala Crater - Before the Sunrise

Best On Black. This is one more shot of Haleakala Crater I am posting, The other tomorrow is of the actual sun crest. In addition to the cold and the wind, the difficulty for these shots was the incredible dynamic range of the subject with the sky many stops brighter than the foreground. After much work, I was able to pull out an image that captures what I remember seeing.
