The House of Sun
November 7, 2009 § 24 Comments
Today, dear reader, we climb to the summit of a massive dormant volcano in Haleakala.
Haleakala is situated on the leeward side of the Maui rain-forests and forms a mass of undulating conical hills and craters, rising up to ten thousand feet above sea level.
Without the risk of exaggerating, I can safely say that this surreal place casts quite a spell on its visitors (I call it cumulus spectacularis!). High up in the clouds, it is known to offer a front row seat to one of the world’s most beautiful sunrises.
Unaware of the beauty about to unfold (and unprepared for the stinging cold), I was there, to witness the sun set instead. (Why? Well, it’s kind of complicated. Firstly, I am partial to sunsets. Secondly…well, I had rather not say, lest my boss is reading this)
The picture taking part was as easy as it gets. In fact, wherever I turned, the view was breathtaking. I had all the time in the world to do nothing and keep shooting.
The sorting, my friends, turned out to be quite a pain! What to include in the post, and what to withhold? Every image seems so unreal back here in NYC. Just out of this world, and quite literally so.
Square, HD-esque, or just plain old Landscape? Almost all of them captivate me in all shapes and sizes. And to complicate things further, I played quite a bit with different exposures while clicking, so that now my options of picking a certain frame or shot have multiplied by multitudes.
Trouble with too much choice?! Yes, there is, and it’s precisely this – more decisions to make! My little editor is now tired and slinking away. I have decided to give up making much sense to myself, and leave the judgment into your capable hands.
There is no more room for words. Here are three sets of images that speak.
