    Awsesome mate… we just came back from Maui we did the sunrise tour also dosen’t look as good what you got…oh well that’s the way mother nature plays. =)

  • Thanks so much, Tony. This shot was taken at sunset. Haleakala is a challenging place due to the altitude and quick weather changes. Did you take the bike ride down?

    No bike ride for us, and yes it was a bit colder than expected and was raining when we left Lahaina.At some ridiculous hour we did take a blanket from our hotel as suggested by the tour company. We both throughly enjoyed the experience and wolud love to do it again next time we visit. maybe even sunset
