The very moment I saw Fuji-san, it was nothing less than breathtaking. It was an autumn evening when I visited Lake Kawaguchiko to witness this mountain. Fuji-san is 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft), the highest mountain in Japan. The snow covered cap and its symmetrical shape makes it easily, one of the best cultural site to visit. To get this shot, I had to climb another mountain facing Fuji-san, and all I can say, “It’s worth the trek to get this picture.”

What started as weekend trips to kill boredom developed as a keen hobby for Subramaniam K V, an amateur photographer from Kanyakumari, India. It was a visit to Japan for his work in 2006 that started his interests towards photography. Photographing animals, birds, people and nature are his areas of interests. He strongly believes that photography is a medium to keep moments forever. He also believes that for a good photography, an excellent eye and right moment is the key. His dream is to shoot the great migration of wildebeests at Masai Mara in Africa. Subramaniam currently lives in Munich with his family.
