Photographer's Note

This is a view from Mt. Fuji about an hour after sunrise on a September morning in 1992. This was taken just before another photo from this day, also uploaded to TrekEarth - "Torii".
The body of water that can be seen to the right is Yamanaka Lake. I have just sharpened this a little after resizing. By sharpening too much I lost the smooth misty feeling which reminds me so much of that magical morning.
By the way, although Japan is a hot place to be in Summer time, if you climb Mt. Fuji during the night and anticipate a wait before sunrise, take some warm clothes. With the thin hiking trousers I had on, the couple of hours wait for sunrise was harder to bear than the climb itself. I almost froze!
