Weekend: Enoshima sunset (2/2)

fullsizeoutput_85dFrom Kamakura, we rode the Enoden line to Enoshima, a small island off the coast of Kanagawa Prefecture. It was almost sundown when we arrived, and we were immediately mesmerized by the golden sun reflecting the ocean. We spent a considerable amount of time basking around the shore.

Sunset hues plus the panoramic view of the Shonan Coast. What more could I ask for?

The sun bursting in hues of pinks and reds, taken just a few seconds apart. Sunsets always leave me in awe. Breathtaking view.

Till my next weekend excursion! Here’s to chasing sunsets and pursing dreams.
