Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken in Maui, Hawaii at the top of Mt Haleakala. We drove the rented convertible up the through the clouds to the top of the mountain where we spent the day hiking.

Time

This photo was taken shortly before sunset in the warm light of golden hour

Lighting

The light was bringing out the colors of the volcanic ash adding dramatic shadows to the various crevices and hills.

Equipment

This was taken during a hike, handheld with no flash.

Inspiration

After hiking the various trails in the National Park, we climbed a small hill to come to this incredible view. The most amazing park was being above the clouds and watching them scrambling all around the mountain throughout the day.

Editing

This photo required just minor edits to the raw file in Lightroom. It really was this beautiful naturally.

In my camera bag

When I hike I usually carry my Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera with a wide angle, this is using my Sigma 17-50 f2.8. I sometime carry a tripod, but not this day and a telephoto of some type.

Feedback

When hiking, I always take the little off shoot trails. Some of my best shots are not during expected viewpoints.
