gThe early bird catches the wormh says the proverb. The cool morning air is surely refreshing. If you come across a rare wild bird while walking in the early morning, youfll feel like having gained some profit. And if you are blessed with a chance to watch a sky bright with the glow of dawn, you may be really sorry you didnft carry your camera with you. This occurred to me the other morning. It is no use going for a camera, because the most beautiful moment usually lasts no longer than five minutes.


Itfs late August now. Wefve had a spell of clear weather since the beginning of the month. The dayfs highs hover between 31 and 33 degrees Celsius. Learning a lesson from my failure, I decided to take my camera when I go for a walk or fishing in the early morning.


The photos shown here were all shot at dawn in the latter half of this August, at the coast of Tatsugo Bay near Sedome Village. There are days with a mackerel sky and I feel fall is just around the corner.
