    Early soft light on the most recognizable mountain in the world Mt. Fuji. Fuji has become my muse, having had the opportunity to travel to Japan often shooting Fuji in unique compositions has become the goal. This view is a scene shot from the small seaside village of Kumomi along the Izu peninsular and across the Suruga Bay. While the effects of lens compression make the mountain look close it is over 50 miles away.
    All Comments welcome and thanks for viewing regards,
    Dean

    I would not have even come close to guessing how far away that mountain was - very nice portrait of that icon.

    You have a very nice composition here and I am amazed at the clarity given the distance, also the DOF is amazing for a long lens image.

    Alan, Ben
    Thanks for your comments.. some one told me 100 miles so I went back and did a point to point measurement now that I am at my desktop which ended up being 50 miles and 100 miles by car so sorry for that but still pretty wild for distance and compression. :) I have corrected in my original post.

    How interesting Dean! Lens compression sure can be cool. You have so many great views of Mt Fuji, this is another great one.

    Beautiful. I like the contrast of sharp rocky foreground with the softer pastels of the distant mountain. The little cloud above really makes it for me. I love it in color, but would also convert to B&W if it were mine.

    Jim,
    B/W was what I had originally thought on this and is what I had originally processed :) from a different frame. The color image is a crop from a larger pano which I have not posted yet.
