The House of the Rising Sun

Getting up at 2:15am for a photoshoot is not always a fun shoot. However, waking up early for the most beautiful sunrise these eyes have ever seen was well worth it. From the summit of Haleakala which stands 10,023 feet above sea level you over look a river of clouds from above as the sun pokes through the horizon.

The shot below is a composite of 8 vertical images taken to help make the final image better quality.

It was quite a spectacle to see the sunrise over the clouds and it looked like I was sitting on an airplane to get the angle. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Maui to make the drive to the summit of Haleakala.
