This photograph definitely was accompanied by a state of wonder! It was taken Christmas Morning, 2015, as the sun rose over the clouds at daybreak on Mt. Haleakala, a volcano on the island of Maui. We were at the summit with a few hundred other TOGs and families. We were blessed with a clear morning, although it was in the low 30’s near the summit, at over 10,000 feet where this was taken.
Specs: Nikon 5200 DSLR, 200mm lens (best I had at the time).
Location: Mt. Haleakala, Maui, United States
It is definitely hard to photograph something when you are not supposed to be looking directly at it! But, this is just one of many really nice shots of a wonder – filled experience on that day!
This is my submission to the Lens Artists Photo Challenge for 7/7/18.
