Sometimes a place sticks in your mind so much, that you have to go back. Sometimes, a place is so relaxing, that you need to return. For us, this place was the island of Taketomi in Okinawa prefecture.
In terms of the island and area itself, I have very little to add since our previous visit. Our entire stay was centred around relaxation, and we just spent our time cycling around, taking photos here and there, or reading on the beach.
Most of the photos I'll show today, were taken with a polarising filter (C-PL) on each respective lens. Polarising filters really make foliage and sky colours "pop" with contrast and increased saturation.
Can you see anything in the rocks?
There are hundreds of water buffalo on the island, which pull carts of tourists around the streets of the island. I generally prefer seeing them without the carts; it's hot enough already!
When we were down at the beach, we were treated to a scene I did not expect, and is one of my favourite shots from my time on this tiny island.
