For we coastal dwellers mountains are austere, cold and forbidding places that block out light and have no familiar rythm. I live overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Here, our life is bounded by horizon, tides, and sunsets. We see giant storms come through and watch wonderful and wierd cloud formations. We get lonely and lost away from the sea.
But I know for others it is different. You see mountains in their cool isolation as wondrous and mystical, you play on them, climb them, and ski their icy sides.
As photographers we choose to take images of what we love best. Recently travelling over the Alps we stopped and gazed in awe at lofty crags. But for me I was not content until I saw, at last, a glimpse of the sparkling Mediterranean. So there it is. You Fuji lovers take the best images with the best cameras. Let us have more Mountains and more Ocean.
