Photographer's Note

This is the view above the clouds from the Laban Rata resthouse on Mt Kinabalu. Laban Rata is at 3272m and is the only overnight accommodation on Mt Kinabalu. Trekkers must stay here for one night before attempting to reach the summit in the early hours of the second day of the 2 day trek.

Mt Kinabalu at 4095m is the highest mountain between the Himalayas and Papua New Guinea. In geological terms Mt Kinabalu is young at a mere nine million years and this granite mountain is still growing at a rate of about 5mm a year.

This is a repost of the image I posted yesterday. Following critique suggestions I have changed the border and reduced the impact of the title.
