Eastern ridge above Yalobi on Waya
Fiji

This was a great view from the ridge above the village of Yalobi on the island of Waya. Waya is in the island chain west of the main island of Viti Levu in Fiji. I had to beat my way through some tall grass and stood on top of a rock while holding the camera above my head to take the photos for this panorama. You can see the bottom part of my body in the straight down shot since I couldn't use my tripod here.  I spent quite a while trying to get to a higher part of the ridge, but the brush was too thick.  I needed a machete.
