Milky Way and Moonrise
I captured this at a circular pit crater called Mauna Ulu, in Volcanoes National Park. This is my third year capturing a milky way panorama here, it’s become sort of like a tradition, and I think this year tops it off. The right conditions aligned for the weather to be clear, the moon to rise in the center, and the milky way to be visible enough. Nothing was dropped in this image, it’s the real deal. This is a 6 image panorama captured with a Sony A7s and Rokinon 14mm.
Honokane Nui Sunrise
Sunrise down in Honokane Nui Valley. Sean
and I were the only ones down there. It’s one valley over from Pololu and the trail down is so steep, that there are ropes in place to help scale it. When we first hiked down, we lost the trail and bushwhacked our way down for hours. It was the worst stretch of hike in my life, but thankfully we found the actual trail the way back up.
