Fascinating capture of an impressive mood! Must have been a sensational feeling.

Greetings Poly, Following the sunrise, hot bowl of noodles and broth and a mess of pictures we started the descent and were confronted by more opportunities like this. Mt. Fuji is a target rich environment for pictures.

As it is difficult to make friendships in the Panoramio this way, I whenever I see a photo look for to praise and to try to be friendly, but, unhappyly the frieza reigns here…! It is sad….

Greetings Fluminense, I am glad you visited and saw my photograph. It sounds like you have not had a very positive experience in the Panoramio community. I am sorry to hear that. For the most part you will meet very friendly people who all have the same passion for photography and like to discuss their hobby. You will meet everyone from very professional photographers to those who have very minimal skill. But we all love photography. Keep visiting other photographers and when they respond and visit your pictures too, you may have found a friend. Good luck.

Greetings Kat, Time to go back down. A chance to see what the gate looked like in daylight. Didn't see much with the headlamp going up.

Greetings Hamza, This is the sight you see as you begin your descent through the Tori or gate. The land below you is shrouded by mists and fogs and looks very spiritual.

Fascinating! Over the clouds on the summit of Fujiyama you float in seventh heaven of ecstasy if you also have passed through the last torii.

We were in heaven as we waited for the sunrise. So beautiful. Cheers, Rich
