Comment: A drive through the night got me a spot on the side of a mountain at a place called Shibutouge, a mountain pass overlooking this scene. As the sun rises it often gives rise to some wonderful morning mist, and I used a 600mm F4 lens here to section off just a part of it, and compact the perspective to accentuate the layers of the trees and the mist.
