The sun never sets in Beppu Bay

Because it can only rise...Few photos taken this morning at Spa Beach. It was so cold but the weather was brilliant and not even a faint patch of cloud in the sky. A female Red-breasted Merganser was resting on the beach along with many gulls, and one or two Japanese Pygmy-Woodpeckers were calling from the trees. It's been a long while since the last time I see the mergansers here. It was a very beautiful morning and I went to Furui-chi and the whole thing was quite productive. The spring vacation is coming soon, only a week and a half left, and I finally finished my Japanese report since Friday night so now I'm feeling really really relaxed.

I'd imagine sounds of birds echoing through the air in the golden light of the morning sun.
