Down The Coast

Down the coast with surfboards and a new camera to test out. There weren't much in the way of waves in the Wada area so we scooted down to the bottom of the peninsula and scored an epic sunset. The view from the hill overlooking Mera Beach had the sun setting in behind Oshima Island and off to the right Mt. Fuji was visible across the Tokyo Bay. Finished the day off with mouth watering sushi at Yamato in Tateyama where, if you go, you gotta try the grilled salmon toro. It just melts in your mouth...

Did you take your 'distant shores' signature shot from the other side of Chiba peninsula? If so, just where you took us across or down towards the bottom and Tateyama more, though Tateyama is getting back onto the ocean coast isn't it?

Actually, that was taken from Kamakura on the Tokyo side of Tokyo Bay as we drove west toward the Izu Penninsula. That day the streets were lined with amateur and professional photographers alike, all looking for that magic shot which we took from out the car window!

Pretty amazing shot - you are good at capturing the special effects of the light.
