Finally, I am back in the UK after a long two weeks. The first week saw me in Singapore for a lot of work and little play, and then I hopped from there to the Philippines before landing in Japan.

I of course could not leave this awesome country without taking a photo of Mount Fuji…but it was a close thing.

John and I decided to take a shot at picking a random town at the base of the mountain, thinking we are guaranteed to get some nice images of this mountain. Not so. Heading to Gotemba we arrived a little too late in the day to find a spot for taking photos of the mountain, and with too little research into where we wanted to be anyway. After a lovely meal and a good sleep we left early the next day to go to back to Kyoto, so photography from this location simply didn’t happen.

Instead, I pulled out my camera with the 70-200 lens on while we were on the bullet train to Kyoto that morning, and simply shot this image while we were on the go. It’s a pity we didn’t just head to Kyoto the day before, we could have simply shot the sunset from the train as well šŸ™‚

Japan was a wonderful country, and my trip this time was far too short and only whet my appetite for it.

It’s lovely to be back in the UK though.

Hope everyone is well.
