Behind the lens: Every morning, hundreds of people wind their way to the top of Maui’s Mount Haleakala. They stand on the rim of the crater, shivering in the cold (elevation 10,000 feet), awaiting one of the most spectacular sunrises to be found. I thought this picture captured the feeling of anticipation.
