Overwhelming Waves and Lucky Sunset over Jogashima Island

Big Waves at Jogashima Island

Jogashima Island is one of my favorite places to take photos at because of its vast and powerful nature. You can enjoy strange shapes of rugged rocks created by the ferocious waves.

I often come here not only because of its nature but also because of its good transportation from the center of Tokyo. You can go down to Misakiguchi Station by Keikyu Line, and then the bus will take you to the island by 30 minutes. It is really a good place to enjoy nature if you live close to Tokyo or Yokohama.

I hear that narcissuses are blooming beautifully now. Perhaps I might come here to see the flowers.

I came here today because I felt that the weather would be great in this island today. The weather forecast on this island, especially the one over the sky in the west, is easy to make mistakes. But today, I felt that everything was OK for some reason.

As far as I remember, this is the first time to visit this island since last March, that is, last winter.

At that time, I was using an APS-C camera, which didn't have a high picture quality as my current full-frame camera. Plus, I have developed my photography skills since then. I was certain that I would get good images today.

I arrived at Jogashima Island at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, a while before the sunset time. The waves were dominant and were catching my eyes through the time.

It was just surprising that even in a cold day like today, there were many fishermen trying to catch big fish. Ahh... Do not fall into the ocean, please...

I was half optimistic but half worried because there were huge clouds dominating the sky. The weather forecast said that it would be sunny today. The same thing often happens in this island.

There was a slight possibility that the sunset would not be available today. Only the god knows what'll happen.

 

Mt Fuji from Jogashima Island

The sun was yet to appear. Mt. Fuji showed its awe-inspiring figure from the horizontal crack. All I can is to wait.

Fabulous!!! The sun appeared from the crack at the very last moment of the sunset time. The strong sunlight lit white waves all around the ocean. It gave me a mythical impression.

The sun was going down to the horizon while every white wave wore this orange color and danced on the vast stage. Definitely, this island is one of the best places to see sunset with waves.
