Miyajima Moments … Miyajima Island, Japan


Today, three images taken at Miyajima Island in Japan.

The first depicts the enormous Floating Otorii Gate at low tide when it’s possible to walk right to its base. When we arrived the tide was already starting to come in. It’s amazing how fast it advances.

The second shows the Floating Otorii Gate at high tide. We deliberately stayed to witness the sunset, along with hundreds of other tourists. It was quite the event, and we were so fortunate to be blessed with a clear sky.

And finally, stone lanterns captured against the backdrop of the setting sun.

It was such an atmospheric and beautiful place. I’m so glad we had a chance to visit. More images to follow in a future post.

Thanks for stopping by  …
