Oyama 2

As a warm-up for Mt Fuji we climbed the aptly named Oyama (大山 – ‘big mountain’) just out of Yokohama. We’d gone half-way up before but were blocked by too much snow. This time, we made it all the way but when we reached the summit it was shrouded in cloud and a fine mist. It was all very atmospheric so I shot in black & white.
