You were thinking something else weren't you??
Normally a shot like this would be taken from a plane or helicopter but in this instance I was standing on the top of a volcano at 10,000 feet. You can just barely make out the ocean and part of the island of Maui in the bottom of the photo.
The sunrises on Haleakala volcano are supposed to be spectacular but I don't really want to get up at 2:00 a.m. to make the trip to the top of the volcano so I opted for a sunset instead.
