A shot of Mt Fuji (Fuji Yama) at dusk, overlooking the town of Fuji Yoshida in the Fuji Highlands on the northern slopes of this iconic volcano . It last erupted in the 18th century. If you look carefully you can see a trail of lights from hikers making their way to the summit with tents, for a sunrise view. There is no snow as it was mid summer. I'll look up the name of the pagoda & edit later. I thought this was worth posting, as there are no other images on TE of this locale (apart from the torii I also uploaded), & a night shot of Fuji is very rare.
Okay, found it! The name of this pagoda is "Chureito".

Bonjour, mon ami Chris,
Fuji Yama, ces mots résonnent dans ma tête comme des lieux magiques. Bravo, Chris, pour nous présenter cette pagode avec ce superbe arrière-plan.
Un vrai plaisir pour les yeux.

Wow! I like this shot a lot, and for something that was not really visible in the thumbnail version. The shape of the mountain is barely dicernable, but it makes a kind of ghostly presence in the frame, but is makes the mountain more mystical. Superb!

Indeed the depth is fantastic. But I find this photo in very low quality! :(

A great sense of depth with the Mt Fuji in the background, interesting to see the line of tents all the way to the top, good note. Well done Chris. TFS.

Great depth and mist. Interesting way to photograph the famous mount and I like the lighting you've here. Perhaps need some sharpness improvements but overall a good pic. I like it, tfs!

Excellent shot in the night. Lovely tone in it. The depth is good and the colours too. Looks almost like a painting.

Interesting compo with the offcentered placement of the pagode in the artificial light. Very good soft setting of the big Fuji mountain in the back.
