Waves: Yuigahama-beach (Kamakura)

The dry landscape gardens (Kare-sansui) of Zen temples often symbolize the sea and islands with the use of rocks and gravels to subtly imply a state of spiritual awakening.

The sea, the sky and the horizon may be a secret gateway to the distant and infinite universe to where we must ultimately return.

The evening sun sparkling with gold is slowly sinking in the west, where the Pure Land of Buddha is believed to exist.
