Sunrise Over Haleakala by Les Tyler

March 2020 - Sunrise Over Haleakala

About the Image(s)

I originally made this image on slide film and scanned it on my Nikon scanner. It was made on top of the volcano Haleakala in Hawaii. I tweaked it in Lightroom and cropped to a pano. The best way to get to the top is to take a jitney about 3am and wait for the the sun to come up. You can also take a bike or hike.
I don't have any camera specs because it was not on digital.

Very interesting image -- looks like it was not taken on Earth! I would say that your early morning was rewarded. What is the bright yellow-orange area in the lower right corner?   Posted: 03/15/2020 13:23:14

This is a very particular image. as Tom said it looks like was not taken on Earth. They looks like the Craters on the moon.
The colors are special, I would see the original image.

I think the clouds are moving. I would sharpen them a bit. You might try taking some blue out of the background as well. Fantastic image! I hope you can get it enlarged.   Posted: 03/19/2020 21:44:42
