[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was a bit reluctant to post this because of the ring around the sun but it is one of my favorite shots from Hawaii. People get up at crazy hours to drive the winding road to Haleakala for sunrise. Did it once and was nice to see the sun making its appearance, but I didn't think it was as spectacular as the amazing sunsets. You are about 10,000 feet up, looking down through the clouds and the sky literally looks like it is on fire. Hope you like it. Have a great day!

Hi Lori,
An outstanding shot against the sun with the glaring sphere still in its fierce moment.
Nice orange/yellow cast in the sky surrounding this beautiful pattern of clouds. There's a considerable depth into the perspective.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hello Lori,
The tint of atmosphere is amazing. Orange perspective appears as if it was taken on Mars. Luminosity on clouds is interesting. Beautiful picture, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Lori,

Superbe capture flamboyante, un lever de soleil magistral!Vraiment superbe. Bravo pour cette composition poètique.

A nice capture of the sunset scene where the sky seems to be on fire, dear Lori!

I like the golden tones which make this composition so strong in its appeal.
The sharpness and colors are well done, however, I might have cropped out the Sun as it tends to have immense OE problems, just my personal taste, so please don't mind.

Other than that, surely a wonderful work to enjoy for ages.

Best regards,
