Shrub at the Top of the World

We got up at 3:30 this morning to make the drive up to the summit of Haleakala to catch the sunrise, something a lot of tourists to Maui do. We managed to get there just in time to watch the sun peek up over the clouds (we would have been there earlier if weren't for a particularly slow driver who refused to make use of the turnouts). On the way back down we could see a front of clouds covering part of the island and so stopped to take a picture. The shrub was my foreground.

We did a bunch of other stuff today including a Luau but I haven't gotten to downloading those images. The sky was somewhat clear this evening, so I went out with my binoculars and got a couple of great views. Unfortunately some clouds quickly rolled in and pretty much killed any more viewing. I was hoping to do some star gazing / astrophotography at Haleakala, but it doesn't look like we'll have time on this trip.

Technical Specs: Canon Rebel XSi (full spectrum) /w 780nm IR filter, 10-22 @ 10mm, f/8, 1/50s, ISO 200.
