Pic(k) of the week 41: SUNSET OVER MOUNT FUJI

Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan and one of the main symbols of the country. At 3776m (12389ft) it is a dormant volcano which last erupted in 1708. Although about 100km away from the capital, it often can be seen on a clear day from downtown Tokyo. 

Mount Fuji is one of Japans Holy mountains, with Mount Tatu and Mount Haku being the other ones. 

Below is an aerial image of Mount Fuji, often by the Japanese called "Fuji san", just as the sun had set behind it. I love how it distinct shape dominates the landscape!  

Image details:
  • Fujifilm XT-2 with XF50mm f2 lens
  • ISO 200, f3.6, 1/320s
  • RAW development in Lightroom CC
  • Nik ColorEfex pro 4 for optimal contrast
Being so iconic, I believe the image above deserves a place in my Aerial Photography Portfolio. Click here, to see the remainder of this "select" group of my best aerial images!

Remember: "Those at the top of the mountain, didn't fall there
