Sign of Ryoutsu Port

I finally arrived at Sado Island. Now, I'm heading to the west to see a waterfall!

 

Lake Kamo and the Clouds

Here's Lake Kamo, which is the largest lake in this island. Fine weather made this authentically beautiful view.

By the way, I used my bicycle to move around the island this time. Cycling is much better to move, stop and shoot in a relatively short distance.

 

Flower Bed on the Steet of Sado Island

Rice Field Spreading throughout My Eyesight

Canon EOS 6D, Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 IIDG HSM (20mm, f/8, 1/100 sec, ISO-100)

I started running again. The rice field spread all across my view!

 

Rice Plants in Sado Island

This brightness stimulates my appetite...

Asiatic Dayflower Grow Together with Rice Plants

I found out this time that rice plants often grow together with Asiatic dayflowers. Is there any benefit in rice cultivation?

 

Inaka Cafe in Sado Island

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (70mm, f/2.8, 1/320 sec, ISO-100)

I found a cafe named "Inaka Cafe", which literally means a cafe in a rural area. But it was a bit early for the cafe to open... They say this cafe is open from 11 o'clock. I'll be here next time.

 

Skyscape from the Hill of Sado Island

Canon EOS 6D, Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 IIDG HSM (12mm, f/8, 1/500 sec, ISO-100)

I went into the mountainous area. The view from the hill was magnificent. Simply... magnificent.

 

Mountaneous Area of Sado Island
