Biwako Waves

On October 12, 2015, a strong southwest wind blew across Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Waves crashed against the rocky east shore north of Chomeiji.

This spot is only a few meters from a lakeside road that runs along a steep hillside. Since it was a public holiday, many cars and motorcycles passed as I was recording and taking photographs. However, I was alone the whole time. Very few cars can park along the narrow road, and there are few trails down the steep embankment. We can hear the traffic, but it looks isolated when we face the lake.
