Mount Fuji by Moonlight

Photograph by Danilo Dungo

Mount Fuji is reflected in the still water of Lake Kawaguchi in this National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest submission by Danilo Dungo. The moonlight, he says, was bright enough to illuminate the scene.

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

the man pensively looking at Fujiyama breaks what could have been boring symmetry in this instantly remarkable picture

How wonderful it would be to be in one of those boats on the lake to see this view.

Wow, this is an amazing shot.  I wish I knew half of what I know now about photography when I lived in Japan.  I would have been all over this.

I agree  minus the guy and the boats.  Even more magical.

Like the song says,' Moonlight becomes you'  and it certainly does that here. A wonderful shot that will live for a long time. I love that it is all so crisp, clear,and the togetherness off it all making the shot. j.e.s........

Wonderful, but the prominent stars suggest this was rather manipulated.

The view would be greater minus the boats and guy in the foreground.
