The Halema'uma'u crater in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is for sure one of the most picturesque locations for taking a photo of a volcano and the Milky Way in one shot.After the sunset at the end of the chain of craters road I drove up to the Jagger Museum to see if I could take a decent shot of this unique location. This spot is breathtaking at night. I was lucky because after this crystal clear night clouds and rain approached the southern part of the island and made it impossible to see the galaxy.
