Photographer's Note

I guess there are many reasons why certain people would trek up or climb mountains when they could be sitting comfy in the living room watching HBO or ESPN. And among those reasons, probably one stand out above the rest is to see things you couldn't get to see anywhere else.

And if you just turn around from looking up or down the trail, and look behind you, you might get to see a much better scene than your own shadow or your tormenting mind.

This is the view of the late afternoon clouds at 3000m asl, on the Summit Trail to Laban Rata, the base camp on Kinabalu National Park. The base camp is another 300m to go and it can wait, for you to relish this quiet solitude vista.
Hey man, you are standing, among the clouds!

Maybe, if we human are not in a rush to kill ourselves in this fast lane we are driving on, this planet might lives a little bit longer and better. And...so are we.
