As I was driving today looking for a new place to photograph, I saw this huge statue behind some trees. I decided I needed to explore this place and find out what it was all about. I also was not expecting any good sunset or clouds today (it actually turned out pretty good, but those will come out later) so a different subject would be nice. As I walked up to the area there was not only a large statue but a temple bell (Kane in Japanese, I think) sitting right next to the coast. The view was just amazing. I wanted to try and get a higher point of view but couldn't find any place to give me a higher field of view. This photo today is of the bell, but I've included a link to a video I made of the area I visited and you can see the statue in the video. I have a lot of good shots from this location so I'll put these up over the next weeks. I'll try and get a photo of the statue up soon, but I really wasn't all that pleased with what I got.
Here's a quick video I made of this location with my iPhone.
