Mt Fuji’s Cradle

The Story Behind the Image: Mt Fuji's Cradle

Mt Fuji puts on a show 24/7, 365 days a year.

Being one of the power spots on earth, it does draw you to it, even if you have seen it many times before.

For me, I love all of its phases, from its Winter snow-covered top to the silhouette at sunset during the long hot Japan Summer days.

Living in Hiratsuka in Shonan, I was fortunate enough to have this view from my local beach. I’ve taken shots of Mt Fuji in all seasons, but this has to be one of my favourites.

With the sun setting over the Izu peninsula, it almost seems like the foothills of Mt Fuji are cradling it.
