Fujisan from Utsukushigahara

The weather was relatively clear, but the air seemed quite smoky that day. Now if only I do black and white conversions better. This was done using Image Factory software with what is in effect, a red filter and their Ilford Delta setting for color sensitivity.

Returned to Utsukushigahara in Nagano last week. Still freezing or below at dawn. Winds were about 50mph in the morning. It was hard to stand up and my camera and tripod would easily have been blown away if I let go. This was taken Saturday night, just before an unusually unspectacular sunset.
