The Mighty Mountain Over the Sea
In figuring out what photo to post, I realized it had been a little while since I'd done a photo from Mysterious Island. This area is one of the most awe-inspiring in Tokyo Disney Sea, especially at night, when the immaculate lighting schemes turn this volcanic land into a photographer's dream. At the literal center of it all is Mount Prometheus, the smoldering volcano that functions as Disney Sea's "weenie" (central orienting landmark, like the castles in the Disney Magic Kingdom parks). This towering icon dominates the skyline all over the park, but here, within Mysterious Island, it is at its most simultaneously ominous and majestic. This scene never gets old. And it always remains mesmerizing.
