Photographer's Note

You are standing just a few metres from the edge of a rockface. And the green in the background is about 3000m below you.

This slope you are standing on is the granite plateau of the Summit Plateau. Altitude is between 4000 to 4095.2m above sea level.

The green you see in the background is the highland pastures of Mesilau. There is a dairy farm, a golf course and a resort somewhere down below. It is also the vegetable garden of Sabah.

Tip:
1. When it's cold, digital camera has lesser noise or grain in the image it captures. The high altitude or cold temperature, cools off the CCD/CMOS's photosensors , limiting grain/noise. Noise/grain is produced from heat of photosensors.
2. While noise/grain is lessened in high altitude or cold climate, so is battery life. Expect 40 - 50% decrease in power retention. Carry a spare battery and wrap it up in cotton clothing, and keep close to your body.
