It was almost 40 years ago when I went to the top the crater for sunrise. I had recently moved to Maui and it was THE thing to do. Don't ask me why, with all of the visitors I've had over the years, no one can get me to go up for sunrise. However, once I discovered sunsets from the top of Haleakala (and another secret area I just can't tell you about because so few people know about it), I go up semi regularly with no less than 3 camera's attached to my body. With any of the 3 cameras ( one is my iPhone) at any moment, you can capture a completely different 'feel' that only moments before. On the odd chance that I bring a friend up with me, no one can understand WHY so many pictures. I'm not trying to capture 'the moment', I'm trying to capture ALL the moments and a photo in 5 minutes might be the BEST picture I've taken in months! Anyway, bring an extra battery (or charger) and storage disc and be ready. And do NOT forget, that often the best colors of the day are minutes AFTER the sun has 'set', or what we think is setting. It's the afterglow that is the WOW! Like many of life's experiences.
