Wow, I'm speechless and honored that this shot was selected as Photo of the Week. This is on the east side of Oahu and is one of my favorite spots to shoot the sunrise. Conditions like these only happen a few times a year and I really lucked out to catch it right this particular morning.

Thank you to JPG for spotlighting this and to David Ramirez for nominating it as PotW.

    A miraculous picture which even with photo manipulation would be almost impossible to achieve. It looks like the boat flagpole is the separator between night and day.
    It's the closest thing of being there myself.

    WOW that is amazing, what does it for me is the splitting vertical line...almost makes the photo look false then when it sinks in that this is real you are more astouded.
