    Mt Fuji is a treasure trove of mysterious shaped clouds. Various forms of clouds appear when a fast air current blows over the Mt Fuji. I stayed in the car during the night at the Inokashira forest road about 0.8 miles above sea level about 25 miles west of Mt Fuji. The small clouds that appeared before dawn grew bigger and bigger. Just before sunrise they had become a huge cloud covering Mt. Fuji. The shadows of them in the backlight were the most powerful masterpieces.

    Your love affair with Mt. Fuji is unflinching and I can tell you that we never get sick of seeing your beautiful photos. I especially like this frame because of the exact positioning of the lenticular clouds and the black mountain against the navy clouds. You’re hard work and I imagine sleepless night in your car paid off.
