WOOT! New PB :)

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to vote and leave comments.

I was actually on the fence about submitting this one since I thought it might not do so well, little did I know.

It stayed above 7 up til about 50 votes then settled at 6.8 for most of the remainder of voting. In the last 36 hours it made a nice rally and went back above 7 for a short bit this morning before settling back down.

This spot is on the eastern most point on the island of Oahu that overlooks the Makapu'u lighthouse. It's about a mile walk each way and I'd highly recommend it if you're visiting Hawaii.

My goal was to recreate this former entry Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_892844.jpg so I woke up at 4am to head to this spot. I was sad that there was a storm heading in which blocked the sunrise but I guess in reality I was lucky since the clouds are what really makes this shot.

I set up my camera/tripod with a timer remote and ran to the ledge to get the shot. It was a little nerve racking since that drop is probably 300 feet and straight down.

The figure takes this photo out of the ordinary and hints at a story that I wish could be told.
