Morning all. Standing at 3776 metres high, Mount Fuji is Japan's highest mountain. Classed as a dormant volcano, it's last eruption was in 1708. Views of Fujisan are variable dependant on the weather and cloud. Lying abut 60 miles south west of Tokyo, it is sometimes visible from the city. Any climbs of Fujisan start from the 5th station, however climbing season ends in August. V1 here was taken from an observation station at the base of Fujisan. V2 was taken between the 4th and 5th station. The bus stopped to allow us to get clear shots as the cloud was closing in. V3 is the shops and touristy bit at the 5th station. I did not get any of the classic shots of the mountain due to the fact we went there on a bus trip, so only got the views on that route. Unfortunately, the cloud had closed in on us so we did not get any views of the surrounding countryside either. Still an amazing experience.
Some people speak of Fuji yama - our guide told us that this is not the Japanese way of referring to the mountain. They refer to it as Fujisan, which is appearantly the same as saying mr or mrs.
Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

Lillian asked me to mention that there were still 2 vacant spaces for the WHF day on 31st October. Anyone interested, please pm either Lillian or myself.

V1 - a fantastic composition and capture, well done! Interesting write up too!
Other two versions are also excellent.

Wreathed in mystery Moira, slim pickings for the poor horse at this altitude. A visit you'll remember for the rest of your life I'm sure.

Excellent images, Moira, a shame the clouds rolled in onto the mountain. Carol

This is the trouble at altitude your right up there with the clouds, but your lead shot is superb Moira i had the same trouble in Madeira when we got to the top of the mountain we were above the clouds and all i could see was the tip of the mountain. So well done in difficult conditions

A wonderful experience, Moira. Not the best of conditions but a fine set of images with a good lead in v1.
