Fuji sunset

24 Comments

Sunset over Mount Fuji as seen from the Yoro river on the Boso Peninsula in Chiba Prefecture. The chimney stacks are fossil fuel power stations along the coastline of Tokyo Bay. The smoke is being blown to the south due to blustery winter winds.

Very nice. That green light in the right foreground really balances the composition well.

Yes, I've never seen such beautiful smokestacks. What's that mountain in the background?

Is there a more over-photographed or over-exposed -- via advertisements, etc. -- landmark than Mount Fuji? Enough already.

Nice photo by Damon McKinlay. Am tempted to call it "Mount McKinlay."

boring factory landscape

It IS one of the contradictions to living here. When I take the Shinkansen from Tokyo south, I try to avoid the shots of Fujisan with the industrial smokestacks. After this, I won't. Very thought provoking photo.

what was the shutter speed on that. love the way the plume is slightly diffused.

I think the smokestacks could be photoshopped out but then the pic wouldn't match reality. The juxtaposition of Fuji and industry is interesting.

Shutter Speed is 15seconds. f8.0
