    It's December on the International Dateline.


    Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

    Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.


    Policies

    *One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

    *Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the "+ (Multi-Quote) button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

    *SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

    *Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.

    Haleakala Sunrise

    [​IMG]

    Sunrise above the clouds at 10,000 ft. from the summit of Haleakala - Maui, Hawaii.

    The temperature drops about 20 C from sea level to the summit and wind can be fierce so you have to be prepared. I took long underwear, a heavy jacket, a toque and mitts to Hawaii for this shot. :)

    As the sun crested the clouds on the horizon, two Hawaiian National Park Rangers broke into song (in Hawaiian) about the importance of the sun and their respect for it...what a great experience.

    Peter, indeed it does get quite cold and windy up there I took this sunrise picture 2 years ago. I had my winter gear on which I brought specifically for this shot. A young couple arrived in regular warm weather close and were frozen and driven back to their car in a matter of minutes. Here's my shot for that day.

    This looks like it would make a good texture to put over another image. I've never actually done it, but I have a few shots I made just to do that some day.

    What to do when you are asked to dog sit and have your camera with you.

    Nicely done Florian and I like the sun star.

    I hope you enjoyed the Haleakala adventure. Not sure how much my wife enjoyed it. I know her toes were curling on the drive up, in the dark without street lights, through hairpin turns and switchbacks, without guardrails and at one point...me swerving to miss cows standing and laying in the road. I know enjoyed it. :)

    I popped into this hotel, the Anchor at Porlock Weir, but didn't expect to find this florid decor...

    Looks like one of those set-ups for testing lens sharpness and distortion.

    Had a lab/Irish Setter rescue who lived to 16 1/2 and looked just like this!

    Due to obvious reasons, I can't link to my latest Flickr upload. So here's a slightly modified MacRumors friendly version. :D
