The mountain

This is one of those shots you shouldn't bother taking or put up on a photo blog but I couldn't resist on both accounts. I put the camera on the side of the bridge and let traffic drive by over the road while the mountain loomed in the background. Why do I like this photo? Because it conveys to me the feeling of the night of the Japanese countryside, not unlike the Ghibli film 'Only Yesterday' by Isao Takahata.

Camera: Pentax MZ-3, lens: Sigma 28-300mm - 1:3.5-6.3
