Galactic Volcano
Photographer Yuga Kurita From the photographer: "When I arrived at Fujiyoshida in Yamanashi Prefecture, I saw people climbing up Mt. Fuji with flashlights and I thought they looked like lava streams. Then I came up with this composition. Nowadays, the milky way appears vertically in the sky so probably I can liken Mt. Fuji to an imaginary galactic volcano, that is, people climbing up with torches are lava streams and the milky way is the volcano smoke. I checked out the map to find out a spot where I can reproduce the composition I conceived in my brain, and I spent a whole day driving and hiking around Mt. Fuji to check out the candidate spots. I eventually found out the right spot for the composition and visited the spot three consecutive nights. The result is this photograph. I'm quite happy with the outcome. =)Two shots (tracked and fixed) taken in the same time frame were combined later."
