Standing Atop a Rocky Place

One sunny day in Maui, a few friends of mine went out to the western part of the island to explore. We hiked to a large area of lava rock and barren land by the seashore. I really enjoy the lighting of a silhouette and wanted to shoot one of my friend as he was standing on this rock. I like this picture in particular because it's hard to tell how high he really is.
