This is a shot I took with my iPhone 6s Plus at Kafuu Resort. The clouds blocked the sunset but it was still a cool scene.
Happy Friday everyone. According to an article in the Ryukyu Shimpo, the first rice planting of the season has begun in Yaeyama. Reading the article made me think of this photo I took a couple years back with my Fuji X-Pro1 of a rice farmer near Onna, Okinawa working in his rice paddies. Thanks for stopping by today.
I know it seems like I'm posting too many sunsets this week, but I was in the Manzamo area tonight, so I stopped to spent a few minutes enjoying the hazy sunset we were having. The sailboat, or whatever that type of boat is called, came into the picture just as the sun was nearing the low clouds that seem to always be there during sunset in Okinawa.
Manza point, or Manzamo as it's called here is one of my favorite spots on the island for great views and photos. Off in the distance you can see Manza Hotel and Resort.
Been a while since I posted. Thought I would post a couple photos from a recent trip out to Maeda Point, a popular snorkeling and diving location here in Okinawa. This is a small beach about a hundred meters to the left of the main entrance. I never grow tired of scenes like this.

Cool winding road / bridge I found the other day.
Cool little cafe near Moon Beach that serves homemade pizzas, taco rice and curry in addition to a selection of tea and coffee. Deserts weren't too bad either. :) They also have a large selection of pottery for sale including the tea cup set shown here. It was raining and cloudy when I went but there's an awesome view of Maeda Point and Moon Beach on a clear day.
