Scenes From Amanohashidate

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 8 January 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

Back down at sea level, a view of one of the bridges joining the sand bar to the mainland. We took a boat across Miyazu Bay instead of walking across the sand bar, much faster, and better views apparently!

As I hope you can tell, we had beautiful weather this day, in fact most days of our two week trip...

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!

Bonita foto. Me encantas los colores rojizos de la colina de enfrente.

No, I have never been in the area...only saw it on TV! (One can see the whole world on Japanese satellite TV and they do it extraordinarily well...as you might have had the chance to sample by yourself). This image brings back memories of Matsushima, we visited the famous area in 2010. Lots of such bridges, longer or shorter....And...moreover you captured the last autumn colours in the far background!

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela - I really noticed how late the trees were showing their colours on this visit, surprising...

Magnificent, the landscape is very beautiful, I love the colors that we discover in the background, they are superb. An excellent photo.
Have a good day.
