We were watching the sun at the beach
till we could no longer see it.
The sun was watching us beyond the sky
till it could no longer see us, too.
at Taketomi-Jima, a pretty small island by Ishigaki-Jima. I lost my words in front of the great sunset.
Nature shows us the greatness overpoweringly. It moves us, but sometimes it scares us.

Very touching photo and note.
The composition in this photo is very simple, yet it makes for a powerful image.
Good capture with the low light, makes for a very harmonic view.
I especially like the way you have managed to capture the sun, I now really understand why Nihon (Japan for those of you who don't understand nihon-go) is called land of the rising sun.
Thanks for sharing

Beautiful image. 'Kirei'.
Very good composition, too. Simple, but very effective.
I love how you have captured the sun. Could only be better if it were a full disc.

Very nice photo, I like the warm colors and the red sun reflected in the water is really nice. The silhuette of the landscape is a very nice detail.

Noriko hermoso paisaje, una estupenda toma del sol enmarcado por esas siluetas perfectas de las montañas oscurecidas. El reflejo rojizo en el agua deja mucho color a esta perfecta composición.
