Haleakala Crater Sunrise

This image was tak­en from a North East­ern cross view of the crater dur­ing sun­rise, the colours are deep and rich in the rock sand and new plant growth.

Kamoal­i’i (The chiefly stones) Pu’u o Pele (Hill of Pele) and Ka Lu’u o ka ‘O’o (Plunge of the dig­ging stick) cin­der cones are vis­i­ble below.

Haleakala is one of my favourite places in the world, it has many spe­cial qual­i­ties about it, and it nev­er dis­ap­points in any weath­er or any time of the day.  To tru­ly enjoy this part of Hawai’i, one must vis­it the Nation­al park from mid­night to mid­night as ever-chang­ing light­ing con­di­tions reward you with spec­tac­u­lar views.
