Photographs of a sunrise from Mount Haleakala, Maui Hawaii
Despite having to get up at 2:00 am to make to trip up to the summit to catch the sunrise, there was quite a gathering of people already at the crater. Due to the low light and lack of a steady place to support the camera, I had to shoot at very high ISO to keep my shutter speed up and the resulting noise is readily evident in the photos.

Soon after sunrise, we rode back down the mountain on a 26 mile bike tour courtesy of Cruiser Phil's.
