Photographer's Note

The carvings in the foreground are part of a tradition on Easter Island whereby the first person to retrieve the first egg from the Birdman Islands would be elevated to status of the Birdman. The rich people would hire out minions to swim across to the islands for them, of course...

Cropped a lot of sky, sharpened.
