Sunday Morning: Haleakala. House of the Sun

“On a recent trip to Maui, I had the opportunity to visit the world’s largest dormant volcano – Haleakala. The size of this volcano is massive – Manhattan could fit inside. I’m still in shock at how awesome this place is. Arriving before sunrise, I placed a few cameras out in hopes to capture what people refer to as, “The most beautiful sunrise in the world.”  People gather from around the globe to witness this kaleidoscope of shifting colors – known as the “House of the Sun”. My hope is to give you a small glimpse of the energy, excitement and elegance this natural marvel brings.”  Good Sunday Morning.

    I’ve been there many times over the years. Awesome is too weak a word to describe it. Thanks for the reminder


  4. SPELLBINDING! Thanks for the morning rapture.



  5. It was like watching the ocean on a rough day.


  6. That was STUNNINGLY beautiful! Thank you, David, for starting my Sunday morning off with such amazement. 🙂


  7. I, too, have had the privilege of being on the volcano for sunrise–got up there at around 4 a.m., watched the sun come up — magnificent! – and then biked down. It’s definitely a breathtaking experience and one that should go on your bucket list, David. 🙂

    Think what that could do to the world environment if it explodes in a full eruption.


  9. How amazingly beautiful…
