The iconic Mount Fuji, from the Owakundani Cablecar terminus carpark. This is in the Hakone area, about 160 km west of Tokyo. The cablecar here goes down to lake Ashi, where you can get a Disneyesque pirate boat across the lake, to Moto Hakone town, then a bus to any of the other hamlets & villages in the area. The other way, up the mountain behind me, was closed for maintenance on the day I visited.

it is an iconic view and I like the originality by including the cable cars as a anchor point, plus the layers of colour and texture entice you effectively to the spectacular mountain beyond. Wonderful!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Quelle image proposée à travers cette composition.
La nature a été aidée par l'homme à voir ces cabines suspendues.
Quelle magnifique vision générale.

A beautiful vertical frame. Mount Damavand in Iran is similar to how the mountain. Eye-catching landscape. Display colors of the sky and trees and attractive lighting quality and good resolution.
Have a nice day

I find the layering most interesting here, with the main points of interest - the cable cars and and the Mount Fuji well positioned in the composition.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui apporte beaucoup de profondeur à l'image. Le sujet est très intéressant et l'arrière plan magnifique.
aloyho (6798) 2012-04-14 5:46
The textural layers here are most attractive and the portrait format just enhanced it even further and as our eyes move upward it rightfully reached the icon of Japan. The cable cars provided a good break and contrast adding that little bit of conflict which makes the story more lifely and interesting. Great shot!!

The distance between the cable cars and the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of Mount Fuji. The morning light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Chris,I like your presentation of this iconic mountain,not only does it show the surrounding area off beautifully, but also has a touch of drama in the cable lift.
The complementary colours also work very well together.
Best wishes Les.

You sought and found a splendid view to the fantastic Mount Fuji. The water turns blue atmosphere, gives the impression of levitation of the volcano in the sky. The light, colors and sharpness are excellent. Bravo.
have a nice day

an awesome of view of Mount Fuji which is seen with great clarity and textural details from a great distance. There's immense depth layered with different types of texture, vegetation, landforms. The cable introduces an aspect of modern life and it's an interruption for me but is also very well placed in the composition and gives scale. I love the clarity, the superb light management and the lovely vivid colours. Thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

You've captured the Mt. Fuji with some activity in the foreground. One normally sees etherial images of the magical mountain floating above an invisible mist. The vertical format is ideal for this shot.
dta (73039) 2012-04-14 8:28
Hello Chris ,
This point of view on the famous Fuji is excellent , especially for the different layers , and for the presence of the cable cars that add interest to the picture .
jemaflor (91301) 2012-04-14 8:46
So beautiful this famous mountain, nice view and vertical presentation, light is well managed and excellent effect with snow on the top of the volcano.
siudzi (34141) 2012-04-14 9:19
This is amazing view! Love it! Absolutely well seen and composed in the vertical format. Great work! Bravo!
everlasting (14710) 2012-04-14 9:25
wonderful clean air Chris, i can breathe it. The build up of layers takes us right to the mountain. Nice work!

Un paysage de contraste, la composition est intéressante et la montagne est splendide, belle présentation
dkmurphys (54489) 2012-04-14 23:41
Very picturesque composition with the snowy peak in the background. Well seen, have a nice Sunday.
jjcordier (79289) 2012-04-15 0:18
La plupart des photos du Mont Fuji évitent soigneusement ces télécabines mais je trouve que cela donne une belle originalité à ta photo, bien sur techniquement très réussie.
danos (92628) 2012-04-15 1:51
nice the view of the Mt.Fuji that always is covered from snows with the view of the cable-car to complete the beauty of the image.I like the different colour layers of the image,with the light and the colour management to are well captured.
Fis2 (92195) 2012-04-15 14:02
Good vertical frame and colors.
eldancer1 (33927) 2012-04-15 14:26
When I lived in Portland, Oregon, from my office, which was on top a hill, I had an awesome view of Mt. Hood. Although I admit it's not as great as this view. I think Mount Fuji is the most beautiful volcano. Nicely captured with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
jusninasirun (17162) 2012-04-15 19:02
You have created layers of contrasting colors in making this a stunning shot. Lovely dry grass, the lush green and mountain tiers are well captured with the cable car running through.
Thanks and have a nice day.
shevchenko (19058) 2012-04-15 19:12
Good vertical format to frame the snowy peak with include the nature view at foreground, good capture to the passing cable cars too, nice to see the beautiful and unique geographical features here, attractive colourful view in a sunny day, distinct image, good shoot.
foozi (7101) 2012-04-15 23:57
this is a lovely view of Mt Fuji,. The inclusion of the cable cars maker it more exciting and attractive to see.
The layers of colors from the grey/brown to green and white is very arresting.
Nice colors composition.
mauro61 (52855) 2012-04-16 0:41
mi piace molto questo taglio con i colori ben saturi che dal FG arrivano fino alla montagna con la cima innevata.
Perfetto inserimento della telecabina a riempire ulteriormente la scena,
Silvio1953 (133822) 2012-04-16 1:23
Ciao Chris, great landscape with fantastic mountain fullm of snow, lovely composition with cables in action, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Chris - I think what strikes me most about this shot is the layered landscape; its gorgeous, colours and textures attractively captured. The cable car stands out well against the surroundings and has a good immediacy in the wider view. Very well managed shot. Warm regards Rosemary

plusieurs choses me plaisent dans cette photo et bien entendu cet arrière plan avec le Mont Fuji, impressionnant avec con sommet blanc, très conique.
Un avant plan bien coloré et ensoleillé.
Une vue presque imprenable.
Angshu (56740) 2012-04-17 6:23
Namaste dear Chris
For me this is an original view of the icon of Japan. The picture works well with its layers. You could have possibly cropped the gravelly layer in the FG..The cable cars create an interesting FG.
ikeharel (65241) 2015-05-03 3:05
The glorious Fuji mountain from a best perspective for its full cone view, well taken from a distant point, Chris.
The cable cars are a nice bonus to the sight.
Scaled beautifully from the field in FG, forest and the closer ridge.
Have a nice Sunday,
serp2000 (42554) 2015-05-27 3:25
Great shot! Perfect composition, fine details, very nice vivid colors! I have seen Fuji through a shinkansen window only, when I came back to Tokyo from Hiroshima.
