This man photographed Mount Fuji for seven years—here’s the result

Despite taking hundreds of trips to Japan’s iconic mountain, this photographer has never climbed it.
Takashi Nakazawa is from Tokyo, Japan, and fell in love with Mount Fuji when he first visited it seven years ago. Since then, he’s traveled to the mountain almost every single weekend, amassing an estimated 70,000 photos. He often makes the drive from Tokyo in the dark of the night, and stops at a nearby mountain, lake, or road, and sleeps in his car until dawn, his favorite time to photograph the mountain.

Rainbow City by Cristobal Serrano

I flew my drone high above the huge flocks of lesser flamingos (Phoeniconaias minor) at the muddy banks of Lake Bogoria (Kenya), where they find their favourite food, cyanobacteria of the spirulina genus, in the alkaline water of the lake. Because of the dry season, minerals and salts from the volcanic subsoil are highly concentrated, creating an explosion of rich colours that is visible from the air. The pink colour of the flamingos perfectly complemented the colour range of the great artist Mother Earth.

Test du NIKON AF-S 500 mm f/5,6E PF ED VR

Ce 500 mm à lentille de Fresnel est gros comme un zoom 70-200 mm f/2,8. Il affiche de belles performances et un tarif étonnant — au bon sens du terme. À 4000 €, la facture est lourde, mais on pouvait craindre pire, les prix ayant tendance à s’envoler en ce moment, toutes marques confondues.
