The House of the Sun

Posted by

In my opinion this is the best place to check out sunrise. Haleakala National Park Summit, standing 10,023ft above sea level, with clouds below you, literally makes you feel you are in Heaven and the Sun wakes up to salute you.

I'm a newbie in photography. It all started for me at Death Valley National Park when I had a point and shoot and couldn't do justice to the gorgeous landscapes. Since then I've been traveling to places with my SLR, trying to capture the incredibly beautiful mother nature. I'm also exploring several other genres of photography, so I hope everyone give me feedback, both good and bad, helping me grow as a photographer.
