Haleakala, at 10,023 ft., is the highest point on Maui, Hawaii. It is a dormant volcano which last erupted in 1790 and sunrise is reputed to be stellar. I agree!


I rose at 1:30 in the morning to be in position on the western edge of the crater caldera. It was extremely cold and only made worse by a fierce wind. My companion and I both had ample cold weather gear, but were pretty chilly nonetheless. The shots I took made it worth the effort. We rode bicycles down the mountain and it was exhilarating!!

The winds were blowing like crazy this afternoon creating some amazing waves, which in turn creates huge blows from the blow hole.

Another shot at the edge of the Haleakala Crater looking out to the West side of Maui, Hawaii. I was totally mesmerized by the ever changing cloud layers and would have taken pictures into total darkness if I hadn't been so tired from my hike down into the crater.

This is a HDR picture where I rendered it as close as I could to how it actually looked to my eyes when taking the picture.

10,000 Ft Sunrise


A 98 megapixel panorama created from six individual photos, showcasing a high elevation (10,023 feet at the summit) sunrise at Haleakalā National Park.


The lack of light/environmental pollution and dynamic weather patterns make Haleakala an sunrises a unique experience. This morning the strong off shore trade winds held the clouds against the visitor center, only allowing small sections of sunrise to be visible.


It is a little bit better to view in LARGE. (recommended)


This photo is Non HDR or blended images and taken from just one exposure.


This was on the higher elevation and located on Island of Maui around the area of Haleakala Crater.

After a long drive, this is what I saw once I reached the top. It's call Red Hill. Everyone drives up there because they want to see this mountain. I think I had a picture where I saw another mountain from another island, but I can't find it anymore.

Another shot from the rough, windy side of Maui. About 10 miles past the Ulupalakua Ranch/Tedeschi Winery area that most tourist never get to. If I ever get back to Maui, I plan on doing some serious photography on this side!


Best viewed Large!

Goodnight from Kalama Park - Maui.

Tonight's sunset was a bit more brilliant after another stellar day!

*my texture*

The day began before dawn on a cold day at the top of Mt Haleakalā. We easily descended miles into the crater on the Shifting Sands Trail with all our camera gear on our backs, happily shooting dozens of photos of this amazing moonscape. At some point we realized, oh we should turn around and head back up, mindful we had descended at least 4 miles. Halfway up we discussed leaving our precious tripods at the side of the trail, 3/4 of the way up we were ready to leave all our gear behind to save ourselves from heart attacks. Slowly and with many stops, we made it back to the car with all our equipment in tow. A day not to be forgotten, despite the pain I'd do it all over again to be part of that magnificent landscape. We are told NEVER shoot directly into the sun, I believe rules are made to be broken, how else would I have captured this colorful flare?

Have a great Tuesday, my flickrino friends! ♥

Two versions of the same scene. At the ten thousand foot top of the Haleakala Crater, looking over the ocean and Kihei, Maui, Hawaii. We found a ledge that blocked the icy wind and set up our chairs and ate dinner. It was hard to eat and not take pictures, as the sun sunk into the clouds with their ever changing colors and details.

In the clouds at about 8-9 thousand feet, while trying to find the Maui Redwood Forest. At this point the visibility closed in to around 20-30 feet.

A change-up from the past that has been in my holding folder forever.

Waianapanapa State Park, Maui


The peacefulness draws you in when driving by, it is impossible not to stop and take some time to soak in the view.


Must be viewed large. Cattle Egret chicks waiting to be fed. Kaanapali, Maui Hawaii.

Tonight brings us to......Kihei on Maui on Kam II beach for sunset.

The burst of warmth and tropical essence when you leave the plane when first arriving here is very soothing.

No, I'm not in Hawaii. Just another of those old vacation pictures that I liked but never posted.


I used a small pocket flashlight to light the green on the rock.


Now that I have a wide angle lens, I would really like to go back and try this type of shot again.

125 megapixel panorama of the pacific ocean waves crashing onto the rocky shoreline of the Northern Coastline of Maui, Hawaii.

The male anole lizard have brightly colored dewlaps that they use to attract a mate or warn a rival. To a female anole lizard, the bigger and brighter the dewlap, the better they’ll like him.

This little creature was doing the "bob" and showing his dewlap while I was resting on "his" rock while taking a photo of the sunset tonight.
