International experts inspecting a hazardous waste storage site in Ishinomaki, Japan, during a UNEP mission after the 2011 tsunami. Shot taken with Canon EOS 500D, EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, focal length 18 mm @ f 4.0 and 1/4000s.
This is a 360° panorama taken during the UNEP PCDMB mission to Japan at Soma beach, some 35 km north of the Fukushima nuclear reactors. The trip took place in March 2012, about one year after the earthquake and tsunami. The 8 m concrete tsunami wall was just shattered by the waves. More than one year after the tsunami most of the tsunami waste has been cleared away. The complete absence of houses, crops in the fields, trees, etc. gives an eerie touch to the scenery.
