Mt. Fuji at sunrise


Notes

Taken at 5:30am across from Lake Tanuki, in Shizuoka, Japan earlier this summer. This was part of a spur-of-the-moment road trip on my own, driving out in the middle of the night and wandering around the lake looking for the perfect vantage point. Several hours of waiting later, I was able to take this photo.

10-stop Heliopan ND filter was used to open the shutter long enough to smooth over the ripples on the lake's surface, which was otherwise quite choppy due to a brisk morning breeze.

Love how this image reduces to just shapes. Nice capture, we'll worth the trouble.

Thanks for the comments everyone! The crazy vignetting is from the 10-stop Heliopan, but it was an amazing moment when the sun came up from behind Mt. Fuji after hours of waiting :) In hindsight, I should've tried to take out the vignetting as it looks way too dark on the periphery...
