Mount Fuji Surrounded in Glorious Colors by Hidenobu Suzuki



Japanese photographer Hidenobu Suzuki submitted below images of Mount Fuji calls Sleeping Giant. He has taken these images after a heavy rainstorm. These pictures show Mount Fuji looming over Fujinomiya, a city located in the Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan. He said; I’m really impressed the beautiful colors of these images, and when I took the photographs in a breathless silence, I had a strong feeling that the Earth was alive and had a soul. The best landscapes were often sweeping, with dramatic light, weather, or terrain. I looked for landscapes that felt untamed, portraying Mother Nature as the wild, awesome force that dwarfs and awes us with her power and beauty.

Moreover; Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 12,389 feet tall. Mount Fuji is famous for its exceptional beauty and symmetrical cone shape. The mountain is famous for symbol of Japan and it is an active volcano, which had last erupted about three hundred years ago. These photographs were appeared in National Geographic's Your Shot assignment called “Embrace the Untamed”. Out of 18,000 submitted, it was chosen as one of 32.
