Dense clouds by a lake disappear to reveal a beautiful mountain range. Scores of people who hiked up to the lake in the Japanese Alps were rewarded with the picturesque view of the neighbouring peaks.

The mountain can also be seen reflecting off the water as it appeared through the clouds. Photographer Takeshi Mitamura captured these shots from the Happo Pond, on Mount Karamatsu in the Japanese Alps, which is just over 2,000 metres above sea level.
