Teaser Picture  
I'm sorting and captioning pictures in preparation for loading them, probably onto ladyat's Flickr site. In the meantime, though, here's the best of the ones I've sorted so far:

Lovely! That would make nice computer wallpaper.

Good idea - done (with the full-scale version).

Beautiful. You'll laugh, but the colours remind me of smoky mountain cats. :)

Are those just hot pixels up near the summit or is there a road up there ?

Very nice shot. Too bad you weren't at the near shore of the lake. The reflection would have been neat.

Those are lights from the huts along the main climbing trail this side of the mountain. I think the lowest one (about a third of the way down) is probably the 6th Station, considering that's the first one with lots of lights that is above the tree line. The wider bit close to the top is probably the station they call the Fuji-San Hotel, which is a pretty big set of buildings at about the 8-1/2 Station.

If my camera had not been nearly out of juice during the climb, such that I was not trying to get pictures that would require lots of checking and re-taking to make sure one came out, I would have taken a picture of the sight when you break out of the trees and see almost a vertical line of lights stretching up the mountain toward the top.

I figure this picture was taken about 12 miles (linear) from the summit of the mountain.
