"Floating Lanterns," Dwight K. Morita. 2010 Pluralism Project Photography Contest Grand Prize Winner.
Floating lantern ceremony at Ala Moana Park in Honolulu, Hawaii to honor ancestors. As the sun sets in the background, small boats with Buddhist monks and church volunteers launch and shepherd the small armada of lantern ships, each inscribed with sentiments from family and friends. This traditional Buddhist practice began as a small ritual, but has since grown to become a major event attracting thousands of people of all faiths from around the world (Photo by: Dwight K.

On the southwest part of the island the cliffs are high and pounded directly by the Atlantic, which cuts out caves that blow spray into the air with each wave. The cliff walls are always wet with rainwater and spray, so they're streaked with bright green moss. Edit : There's a different shot of the cliffs here : www.flickr.com/photos/stunt_penguin/4168745697/
