And to think I almost didn't enter this because I didn't think it would do very well...thanks to my TPL mates for convincing me otherwise. :)

This spot has appeared in a couple of my entries before, this being one of them.

This is the Byodo-In Temple at the Haiku Gardens Cemetery on the windward side of the island and as 3102.gif alanfreed points out, it was the location where Jin & Suns' wedding took place (from the tv series, Lost.)

A little known tidbit about the Haiku Gardens Cemetery:
Former Philippines president, Ferdinand Marcos's body, was at this cemetery for a short while. While here, there would be a mile long line of cars, all day - every day, driving through the cemetery to get a glimpse of his casket. He passed away in Hawaii while in exile and this is where his body was before being flown back to the Philippines.

Thanks everyone for the great comments and votes.

Quite beautiful! Really love the splash of red amongst the green. The mist gives it another layer of complexity.

This is my favorite entry in the challenge. It's like the fresh smell after the rain. If I had my way, this would be a jigsaw puzzle. I would put it together, then glue it and hang it on my wall :)

Looks like someone's hangin' out in Hawaii! As a fan of Lost, we really enjoyed visiting this spot a couple years back.
