Sunset Over Suisho-hama Beach

Time-lapse video of mesmerizing sunset over Fukui beach

By Hiroshi Ohnuki    - 1 min read

Located on the western side of Tsuruga peninsula, Suisho-hama Beach is covered with rough-textured round stones. When you walk on the beach these round stones will give you the impression as though you are walking on fine crystals. Thus, the beach was named Suisho-hama (Crystal Beach). The beautiful white sand beach (in fact stones) and its clear water made it one of the '88 Best Beaches in Japan' selected by Japan's Ministry of the Environment. The beach is also well-known as a Sunset Beach, and one day I tried to capture it on video. When I went, the sky was hazy and the horizon was unclear, which made me almost give up videotaping it. But I did it anyway and I'm glad that I did, for the sunset turned out to be simply gorgeous!

I'm a professional photographer and videographer based in Fukui Prefecture. I'm either taking still photography of merchandise at my studio or shooting photos/videos of landscape, people, etc, out in the field upon my clients' request. At the moment, my interest lies in the video shooting using mini drone, and I'd like to share with you here the aerial videos I shot in various places in my hometown Fukui. 私は福井で写真/ビデオスタジオを経営しています。普段はスタジオで各種商品のスチール写真を撮影、もしくは顧客の要望に応じて各地へ赴き、写真・ビデオ撮影を行っています。現在マルチコプターによる空撮に凝っており、私の故郷福井で撮影した各地の空撮映像をジャパン・トラベルの読者にお届けしたいと思います。
