Photographer's Note

The "floating" torii at Miyajima (actually Istukushima) just off the cost of Hiroshima is a UNESCO World Heritage site. And as such it has been photographed by millions of people already. I do realize this shot is almost cliché, but returning from Japan without it would be almost a punishable offense.

I spent several hours at the site beginning with a low tide early in the afternoon through high tide around sunset until the evening. Out of several tens of shot I chose this one because I really like how the long waves in the lower left corner close the composition and add some degree of symmetry into it.
