Oh, Mt. Fuji is a wily one. For years this great big symbol of Japan has eluded my shots, dodging behind walls, telephone poles, buildings, or clouds. Even when I climbed Mt. Fuji I failed to get the perfect shot due to a rain storm that hit that night.
This has been a long time coming.
Mara vs. The Slumbering Volcano.
Today, on Christmas Day, the mountain could escape my camera lens no longer. At long last I achieved a perfect shot. Behold, for I have conquered the mountain, and captured it exposed in a cloak of powder white, naked for my digital memory banks.
This is my Christmas Present from Mt. Fuji: a perfect shot of its wintertime glory.
