Miyajima Torii

Being the photography nerd that I am, I recognize the significance of photographing at different times of the day. When we arrived on the island, the tide was low so I wanted to come back to see the torii gate in the water. I did some research (aka going on Instagram) and noticed that the torii gate actually lights up at night. So, I returned to the torii gate with my tripod in hand. It was still low tide at 9pm but after an hour of very patient waiting, the tide started to rise.
