Finally, the most unassuming of Gulf states, Bahrain! Also standout for its esp. high proportion of Shia Muslims. A friend spent four years here and hit me up with some hot shawarma intel. Then I just got a car and kinda glided about for a night and a day. 😀 (Manama, Bahrain)
An Except for those more interested in this phenomena.
Usually, Mount Fuji impresses with the contrast of the blue mountain range’s peak being covered in white snow. Under certain conditions, it changes its appearance to a crimson color of sublime beauty. The time between late summer and early autumn brings several factors together that make this possible, including clear air and altostratus clouds that reflect the red light. A rare phenomenon; “Red Fuji” is a seasonal word. Because the snow on Mt. Fuji’s peak begins to melt and exposes the reddish at the beginning of summer, the tinged sunlight emphasizes this and the mountain appears vividly red. The ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai’s famous work called “Fine Wind, Clear Morning” (gaifūkaisei) of the “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” series is the reason why the “Red Fuji” became so famous.
Gaifū means southerly breeze; with the cirrocumulus clouds floating in the scenery of a blue sky, the drawing of the revered mountain’s crimson-dyed appearance boasts a spectacular impact.
