The Saddle Road on the Big Island of Hawaii goes between the peaks of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Mauna Kea is home to many
astronomical observatories. Perhaps that is why there are 'cosmic' ice cream cones where the road enter Hilo.
When there are good clouds, feature them. Not difficult to figure out in this case. The wide angle is important to give the
'big sky' feel. When the sky dominates the automatic exposure, the sky appears as a nice blue rather than washed out.
