At low tide you can walk out to the torii gate.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Love your wide foreground and the whole compo, seems a photo from old times reportage, 50's maybe... Love your strong blacks.
