The following image was captured on the volcano summit in Haleakala National Park, Maui. This was the only day during the week of our visit that the summit was not totally cloud covered. At over 10,000 feet above sea level the view from the summit looking down into the crater has been descried as if being on the moon. I can see why, it is absolutely stunning as the summit peeks above the clouds.
To capture this image my lens of choice was a 16-45mm wide angle zoom along with a circular polarizing filter to obtain better color saturation. I used an ISO setting of 200 ( I always like so set my ISO manually ). I used a shutter speed of 1/80 and an aperture of f/11 to give me greater depth of field. The winding, bending road to the top was quite an event within it self but it was truly worth the drive to the top.
