Mizukoshi Shot Fiery Mountain
Takeshi Mizukoshi@Mt.Fuji/Winter 1996

>>The Crater<<
"Mt. Fuji has a beautiful shape, called konide in volcano terminology. However, it is only when we see the crater that we realize that Mt. Fuji once erupted. I wanted to show this, so I photographed it from an airplane.
I shot it from 6,000m and had to charter a large Cessna to do so, as an ordinary Cessna can only fly as high as just above the mountain's peak.
It was very cold. I wore climbing clothes and was equipped as if I were climbing the mountain in winter, because I needed to open the window to take good shots."
