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.

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

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.

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

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

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