Sleeping Giant

Mount Fuji looms over Fujinomiya, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, after a heavy rainstorm. “When I took the photos in a breathless silence, I had a strong feeling that the Earth was alive and had a soul,” writes photographer Hidenobu Suzuki. Suzuki’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot assignment Embrace the Untamed. This photo was submitted to Your Shot.
