I couldn't have asked for better weather. Photographically, it was a bit challenging as I was shooting into the sunrise the whole morning. I was free to walk around three sides of the scaffolding that surrounded the statue as they were working on the 4th (East) side. This image was shot with a 10.5mm fisheye lens. I was extremely close to the subjects, so I took the opportunity to use this fisheye lens for part of the photo shoot.
