Reflections of Fuji-san

We visited Kawaguchiko in Japan to see some of the iconic views of Fuji-san.

Visiting in September we had overcast weather for the three days we were there, with this view of Fuji-san only opening up on our final morning.


Getting up at sunrise I walked down to the Lakeside from the hotel, hoping to see Fuji-san, but expecting to shoot the lake. I was greeted with this view, and worked hard to find a scene that had a beautiful reflection.


One of the keys of landscape photography is the willingness to spend at least a few days at any one location, maximising your chances of getting the shot.


So I was pretty happy with this.


Now its clear that visiting in September means that you are in Autumn, and the iconic snow peaks of Fuji-san are mostly melted, and of course you have higher chances of overcast weather. On the plus side, crowds were small.


Every season has something to offer, and I am very happy with the beautiful reflections of an iconic mountain.
