Pirate Ship of Tosa?

Mysterious fishing boats floating on a foggy sea

I visited Furusato (Hometown) Beach of Nakatosa Town in Kochi Prefecture on 11th December 2011 to take photos of the sunrise over a foggy sea.

Even in Tosa, which is in the southern part of Japan, an early morning in mid December around sunrise was freezing cold! The difference of sub-zero air temperature and the warmer sea water creates the sea fog I came to see. The sunrise painted the fog in red and gold, and the fishing boats looked like mysterious pirate ships as they glided through the fog. I felt like I was watching a scene from a Hollywood movie, maybe 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.
