After one of the nights of observation at the Subaru telescope in Hawaii, I was given a guided tour of the telescope and was then able to enjoy the sunrise from the “catwalk”. In the image above you can see the shadow of the mountain I’m on projected onto the other tall mountain on the Big Island.
At an altitude of more than 4 km you are almost always above the clouds, so there is little rainfall/snow. And due to the volcanic formation, the landscape looks like lunar landscape. As a contrast, another photo 40 km away and 4 km further down.
This was the trip where I rode my bicycle to the airport.
