it looks like Mount Fuji but it is not. We had bad luck with the weather. In the Hakone area where we hoped to see famous Japanese symbol, it was rainy and cloudy. So instead my archiv photo.
Osorno Volcano is a 2,652-metre ,tall conical stratovolcano lying between Osorno Province and Llanquihue Province, in Los Lagos Region of Chile. It stands on the southeastern shore of Llanquihue Lake, and also towers over Todos los Santos Lake. Osorno is known worldwide as a symbol of the local landscape, and is noted for its similar appearance to Mount Fuji.
Osorno is one of the most active volcanoes of the southern Chilean Andes, with 11 historical eruptions recorded between 1575 and 1869. The basalt and andesite lava flows generated during these eruptions reached both Llanquihue and Todos los Santos Lakes. The upper slopes of the volcano are almost entirely covered in glaciers despite its very modest altitude and latitude, sustained by the substantial snowfall in the very moist maritime climate of the region.
Photo made four years ago, two cameras back :)

Hi Malgorzata, A great shot of this most famous volcano, it looks spectacular with it's white cone top, the light through-out is excellent & I really like the view over those rocks, kind regards Wilson.

bellissima questa immagine del vulcano che si eleva con la sua cima innevata.
Bella l'ambientazione intorno e i colori.

great picture with many interesting elements, volcano, lava, river, vegetation and deep blue sky.

Hello Malgorzata .
Ah Ah ! I thought that it was truly the Fuji Yama . I remember looking at pictures of the volcano of friends coming back from Japan : it was allways in the clouds .
This american one is beautiful , so perfect with its snowy summit aagainst the blue sky .

Wow, jaki przepiekny widok! Znalazlas wspaniale miejsce do tej fotografii. Swietna praca. Moje gratulacje!
francio64 (38276) 2011-01-18 13:45
per un momento avevo creduto davvero che fosse il Fuji.
Bella la prospettiva. La cima innevata crea un piacevole contrasto cromatico con la parte inferiore del vulcano.

Hi dear Margo,
Yoy are surprising me with every entry of yours; this time from Chile ! Even if been made 4 years ago.
Very nice capture with interesting notes.
TFS and best regards

Good capture of that impressive mountain. Nice composition, fine natural scene.
baddori (19689) 2011-01-18 14:56
Una domanda retorica ..ma efficace
Monti innevati in luoghi desertici o sub africani ...questo del Cile č l'orgoglio nazionale ....come per noi l'Etna ..
Un omaggio fotografico di peso e qualitŕ
humayun (2955) 2011-01-18 21:07
a very nice capture of mountains............
welcompo and nice frame............
jjcordier (76300) 2011-01-18 22:45
L'illusion est presque parfaite! Ce volcan chilien est trčs attractif. J'ai l'impression que tu as un peu trop forcé l'accentuation sur le premier plan?
JFS (32459) 2011-01-18 23:02
You are right it looks like Fuji volcano, anyway, this is a beautiful image very well captured and very neat too.
Have a good day!
s_lush (16134) 2011-01-19 1:13
This Chilean volcano looks not less impressive and attractive than Mount Fuji. For me Chile is even more interesting country than Japan. Thanks for the excellent presentation of wonderful place!
Juntas (7960) 2011-01-19 2:43
Hi Emka. A very nice picture. I like the contrast with the clean blue sky. Sharpness is great, colors are beautiful and composition very good too. Well done.
Have a nice day.
ikeharel (57112) 2011-01-19 2:57
All viulcanoes has a cone shape when still active, Malgo.
Chile has many vulcanoes, and here excelent view upon - great contrast of white snow on black ash-rocks soil.
Fertile land in FG - that remind me the Etna, only Vulcanoe I ever been
bukitgolfb301 (35900) 2011-01-19 3:52
Hi my dear Malgo
Another wonderful shot.
Yes at a glane quite similar but the top of Mt.Fuji is a little flater, but almost same. Best framework, so fresh bright vivid color, clearly sharp focusing in the detail and very well considered composition as usual. Thanks for your sharing with finest work, have a good day and best regards,
jhm (139134) 2011-01-19 4:42
Splendid picture of these big vulcano.
Nice nature picture. .
Sharpness and clarity make you picture very attractive.
Good perspective and depth picture.
We get a lovely contrast between the light of the foreground and the mountain in background
Very well composition, good presentation too. TFS.
npecanhuk (65408) 2011-01-19 9:26
I love Chile! I love volcanoes and I love chilean volcanoes! This one is certainly one of the most wonderful examples found there!
The picture is surely beautiful and makes me want to go back there soon!
TFS - congrats,
ade71 (2228) 2011-01-19 9:27
Ciao Malgorzata, il titolo mi ha fatto sorridere perchč credevo fosse proprio il Fuji....... Bella foto e bel panorama. Anche il Cile deve essere un luogo meraviglioso. Grazie per la condivisione, Ade
raszid62 (18583) 2011-01-19 9:41
Wspaniały stożek wulkaniczny, rzeczywiście wygląda jak Fuji-Jama. Góra przykryta piękna sniegową czapą. a zaraz przy tobie pluskał strumyk górski. Rewelacyjna ostrość.
Fis2 (85447) 2011-01-19 12:10
Piekna gora w "czepku"...
Pierwszy plan mz przeostrzony ;)
Ale i tak robi zdjecie wrazenie.
vasilpro (40933) 2011-01-19 13:43
Wonderful composition, beautiful view with the snowy mountain in BG, very good DOF, lovely colors, excellent light management, very nice POV.
Have a nice evening, Vasilis.
ManuMay (34591) 2011-01-19 22:03
For sure it looks as Fuji!!
Amazing capture very well composed, this view over the volcano deserves a great colours radation from white on the top to black on first ground, alligned on strips...very good!!
Have a nice day...

une belle réalisation 100% naturelle avec toutefois deux petits défauts ŕ mes yeux, la neige un peu surexposiée et la netteté un peu trop poussée, sinon, j'aime les couleurs naturelles et le POV ainsi que le cadrage décentré.
Waylim (25344) 2011-01-20 0:05
A very nice shot from you archive. That is the wonderful things about photography, sometimes I feel like looking at different photo from my trip to relive the moments. I can end up spending so much times looking at old photos.
Grea POV and fantastic composition, it seem the quality is not as good as your recent one, but you know how to compose it and well chosen POV.
asajernigan (21148) 2011-01-20 3:25
This is a great shot of this snow covered volcano. The lava rock in the foreground adds depth and interest for the shot. You have divided the scene into 3 distinctive zones which layer the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has good sharpness.
mkamionka (30616) 2011-01-20 5:06
ja akurat widzialem juz zdjecie tego wulkanu w galerii mojego kolegi ale fakt ze w kontekscie reportazu z Japonii kazdy typowalby na Mt Fuji.
Zgadke oczywiscie troche psuje fakt ze podaje sie location, tak samo zreszta bylo i u mnie. Mysle ze niektore zdjecia doskonale nadaja sie na takie zaskoczenie.
Jak wspomnialem mam jeszcze kilka podobnych pomyslow na zdjecia w Dublinie ale nie wiem czy wystarczy mi samozaparcia zeby je wszystkie zrealizowac tym bardziej ze wole powklejac jeszcze zdjecia z Ameryki Poludniowej...
delpeoples (53009) 2011-01-20 5:56
Ciao cara Malgo
I'm sorry to hear your Fuji adventures were not as you planned. But this beautiful photo of Chile's famous volcano more than makes up for it. Beautiful depth and colour. Is that old lava flow in the foreground? Fascinating, a beautifully composed photo.
Un caro abbraccio
pablominto (53744) 2011-01-21 4:03
A stunning view indeed, with the perfect cone shape covered with snow!
The composition is skillfully done, a bit offset subject and fine sense of depth...
A bit surprising to see the altitude is as low as it is..!
paololg (31448) 2011-01-21 15:52
But the Mount Fuji is where make my camera? :-)))))
Brava, cara Malgo, you have captured an image that seems really the famous Japanese mountain. You have emphasized the typical form of this volcano with an unbelievable sharpness and a pleasant light. Excellent also the depth. Congratulations!
Ciao, buon fine settimana!
serp2000 (39990) 2011-01-23 0:11
You blow up my mind. In the first second I can't explain Chile and Fuji in one place. But you are right, this mount looks like a famous Japanese landmark.
abmdsudi (43460) 2011-01-25 2:06
Good balanced compostion and lovely pov of this stunning image, this is just superb snow capped mountain in beautiful landscape. Interesting foreground subjects are lovely touch in particular the green slopes and rocks formation. Wonderful colors with brilliant blue sky which provides a very good contrast as a whole. Spectacular details and sharpness as always and very well exposed. Awesome image, Well done.
Paul57 (2217) 2011-10-15 21:06
What a magnificent picture of this Mount Fuji-like volcano. I've been twice to Chile but didn't make it to this region. Having been caught in the 2010 earthquake, I don't think I could build up enough courage to return in this part of this wonderful country.
I like the foreground, especially with a partial view of the lake. TFS.
gus72 (3719) 2012-09-15 0:15
Hi Malgorzata !!
I have been there & seen the volcano from the distance...... it has the " perfect " shape.
I like your composition which show volcanic lava in the foreground and then the foliage and the volcano in the background.
Have a nice week end.
