This photograph is taken from the summit of the mountain in Innoshima. The island which appears under its view in Setonaikai can be seen. If we ride on a ferry about about 40 minutes from the Onomichi harbor, we will arrive at this island. The ferry cruises so that it may passed through small islands on the way. Innoshima is a big island of area 33.73 km2 floating on Seto Inland Sea. In this island, there was a pirate called Murakami navy in Muromachi period（1336–1573）and Nanboku-chō period（1336–1392）once. Now, the main industry of this island is the agriculture such as a mandarin orange and the shipbuilding. When I was walking along the mountain path, the leaf was dyed red at some places. It gave the sign of autumn. Although I wandered around the island for about one hour on the way which returns to a harbor from mountain peak, now it is good recollections.
1. Seto Inland Sea
Seto Inland Sea is an inland sea inserted into Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. Yamaguchi Prefecture, Hiroshima Prefecture, Okayama Prefecture, Hyogo Prefecture, Osaka, Wakayama Prefecture, Kagawa Prefecture, Ehime Prefecture, Tokushima Prefecture, Fukuoka Prefecture, and Oita Prefecture have the coastline, respectively. From ancient times, it prospered as a route which connects Kyushu and Kinki. The climate is warm and little rainfall throughout the year.

What a splendid panorama picture!
A wonderful landscape with the many islands, peninsulas and the high mountains rising up near the sea.
Very well composed in different horizontal layers.
You looked for a good high POV to include the towns at both sides of the water.
Best regards, Paul

una bella veduta della tua terra nella quale natura e agglomerato urbano sembrano convivere bene tra loro.
La composizione è molto buona, così come i colori ed il contrasto, ottenendo un risultato degno di ammirazione.
Un ottimo lavoro.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

I like very much how balanced and elegant this composition looks as you have employed the elements that define the scenery, the colours and the perspectives in an excellent way. We get a great idea of this nice town place and of its natural surroundings, depth and clarity are superb. Apart from that, even beyond the physical description, the picture is a delight to look at for its beautiful light and bright contrasting colours. Excellent landscape photo.

An excelent panorama of the beautiful bay and the surrounding area, mikio.
DOF and clarity, light and colors well rendered.
Fine contrast between the city area in FG, and the forests on the hills and far mountains ridges.
A pleasure to look at. Have a nice start of a new week,
