Time flies! Tomorrow is the anniversary of this picture.
I admit that this picture has many items vying for attention, the pier on the right pointing to Mt Fuji, the clear blue sky and the 3 girls jumping in the air.
But really it’s about who’s where and having fun, which is what I think, is an important aspect of travel photography.
Most tourists to Hakone will lament the fact that the sky would be marred by clouds blocking the view of Mount Fuji.
Lucky me then that the sky was clear, view was nice and I enjoyed the pleasant company of 3 pretty girls (not in picture) =P
Here you’d see the old-style cruise ship sailing off for the far end of the lake, in between the giant Torii gate of the Hakone Shrine and the majestic Mt Fuji.
