Definitely a 'WOW' shot! A strong contender for POTW.

When I looked at this, a part of me immediately thought of some of the early 70's album cover artwork by bands like Pink Floyd and ELP in the Storm Thorgerson style.

No one has mentioned the planning needed to get there on one of the few days of the year when it rises in the right spot (and the fantastic good fortune of having a clear morning). Now you have posted once, can we have some more please?
