Tategoiwa at Sunset

Tategoiwa is a limestone rock off the coast of Shirasaki, Wakayama, Japan, famous for white rocks along the coast and popular with divers. The shining white coast line attracted a Manyo poet to write a Manyou poem called "Shirasaki", which I have set to music. This photograph is one of several parting shots of Tategoiwa I took handheld as I was walking away to meet my taxi at Manyo Park. The film was Fujichrome Provia 100F RDPIII. The camera was the OM-4Ti with a 50mm/1.8 lens.
