Nikon D80 with Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens
NATURAL color, I did not change the color at all nor shoot at an unnatural white balance.
Still no snow on top of Mt. Fuji as far as I can tell as of October 12th (2008). Seems like it should have snow already.
UPDATE April 6, 2009 -- I uploaded a newly edited version of this photo getting rid of the horrible vignetting (from the Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens). This version has a bit more pop and the blah of the grayed out, vignetted version is gone and it now looks more like it really did.
UPDATE April 7, 2009 -- My photograph was made into a painting and is available for purchase here: www.mikesblender.com/diary48.htm
