After a frustrating morning of low clouds, mist and foggy weather we decided to watch the movie they offered. At the end of the film, the curtains behind the screen opened to a sheet of pure white fog; normally a stunning view of the crater and mountain. When we left the theatre there was a slight and hardly noticeable warmth to the mist. Within a few mintues, the sun was visible through the mist - but only as a bright yellow circle; diffused. Then, within a few more minutes, the clouds lifted and the warmth was everywhere. I had lugged my gigapan panoramic head with me so I ran back to the car, grabbed my gear and ran back up to the viewer point. A stunning view of a stunning landscape.
