[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Hearing it was snow on Japan Alps for the first time of the year, I ached for looking a snow-capped mountain.
Taking a holiday, I left my home at 3:00am and arrived at start of trail up a mountain about 8:00am. It took about 5 hours to get the 2,800 meters summit, which route was one of the steepest. So it was too hard for me through lack of exercise. But I could see not only the snow-capped mountain but superb sunrise I've never seen.

The next early morning, first there were blank of cloud, and gathered cloud in the east began to flow over the sky gradually, and the empyrean show was continued for one hour.
Dramatic scene can be seen sometimes at turning of weather.

This picture was taken using film and scanned.

PS. Sorry for my broken English.
And I updated my INTRO.
