island, originally uploaded by vibromama.

With fog still obscuring much of the coast, we rounded Gouzaki, the southwest gatepost of Asou Bay. Obediently, the sea calmed down to nearly mirror smoothness. Visibility was limited so we set a GPS course eastward grazing several isolated rocks and tiny islands. Some, including Maguwa-jima pictured here, seemed to be edges of great inclined plates of layered rock just barely projecting from the sea surface, as if the plates were once floating on the sea, but then tipped over and nearly sank.
