I think this view compensates for all the work by climbing up...

Cheers, Andreas!

Greetings Susan, The sun is just above the horizon so you can still see some color. Sunrise is such an event from the top of Mt. Fuji. I am glad you like the scenery. Thanks for the YS.

Thank you for your like and comment.

Not only L+F for this breath taking photo but congratulations for having climbed Mt. Fuji. It is a legendary mountain so it must have been quite an experience.

Best regards Nada BN

Greetings Nada, Thanks for the visit and the comments. Mt Fuji is a very easy climb and can be done in one day with a daylight start. What you must do with Fuji is watch the sunrise. So you start at mid day the first day and spend a portion of the night in a really nice hut (there are dozens of them), then, get up at 2;30 AM and stroll to the top and find a nice place to sit and watch the sunrise. That is the spiritual way to climb Mt. Fuji. It is a lot of fun. Take care and have a great day. Cheers, Rich
