The setting: Maui is almost a double island and the southern part hosts the famous dormant volcano Haleakala. At about 10,000 feet above sea level, the air is crystal clear. At dawn the top of the mountain is often clear and if you get to the top of Haleakala crater by mid-morning you can watch the clouds pour in. Getting there is not much of a problem; there is a good road right to the top. The view is toward the northeast and the Koolau Gap.
Technical detail: Fuji Velvia, 35 mm, Nikon F3 Camera, 50 mm lens, f8.
