Naruto Whirlpool by Mui-Ling Teh
Clear

The Naruto whirlpools (鳴門の渦潮, Naruto no Uzushio) are tidal whirlpools in the Naruto Strait, a channel between Naruto in Tokushima and Awaji Island in Hyōgo, Japan.

The strait between Naruto and Awaji island has a width of about 1.3 km. The strait is one of the connections between the Pacific Ocean and the Inland Sea, a body of water separating Honshū and Shikoku, two of the main islands of Japan.

At first I was wondering whether I should crop this, but I decided to leave it because it was interesting to see the different parts of the water; where the foreground was swirling and the water in the back is calm.

Taken with an Olympus FE-220 on August 16, 2007. It was my first time seeing an actual whirlpool and it was very cool. Too bad I wasn’t actually a “photographer” at the time; otherwise I would’ve tried harder to take a nice pic.

    This is a very interesting shot. I think if you had cropped it you would lose some of the affect of the shot. Great work here.

  • I’m glad I kept it then. Thanks for your comment.

    I’m glad that you never cropped this one, it gives the viewer a better perspective, Is it a rip tide that causes these Whirl Pools, or is there another reason to why these occur?

  • This way far off shore. My mother said whirlpools are caused by water flowing on opposite direction, and in this case it might have to do with that pier. I’m not really sure.

    Off the Coast of Vancouver, where the Campbell River Meets the Pacific Inlet there are large Whirl Pools, caused by the two separate currents coming together, they are mysterious and enchanting to watch. But I’m sure they are also a very Dangerous place to be caught up in. This is very interesting thank you
