Mount Fuji

Mount Fuji proving popular on stock sales as always. There are a lot of great images of this most amazing mountain out there, but my small collection of climbing shots is still regularly bringing in a extra little cash.

It is difficult to take a bad picture of this peak of course, especially at this time of year when the snow blankets the peak in freshness and sharp, sparkling aloofness.

Definitely one of my favourite mountains in the world and luckily I live within sighe of it. Not exactly from my house unfortunately, but a short walk to the local park and there it looms: far, distant and mostly obscured my other peaks and suburban skyscrapers to be true but still magically speaking of altitude and adventure.

Climbed it twice now (which officially makes me an fool apparently) the best ascent by far was the first time however, out of season, uncrowded and just my good friend, Paul Deegan and myself slogging around the crater rim with views of hundreds of kilometres in every direction.

Fond memories.
