"View from Takao"

View from Takao
Views from mountains are one of those things that tend to look very nice in person, as you stand there and feel the wind blowing up from down below, but the resulting photographs taken at the time always disappoint!  On the other hand, since you weren't standing there on Mt. Takao with me when I took this picture, it might be more of interest to you than it is to me.  Certainly I feel that way about photos of natural scenery in places I've never been to - enjoying the photos in the ignorant bliss of not knowing how the wind felt, what scent was in the air, the feeling of being closer to the clouds drifting by overhead....
