5.30am. Sat on the ground, still half asleep. Lacing up walking boots, greeting an old friend as he parks his bike alongside.
With everything under deep shadow, familiar temple structures seem somehow different as we pass quietly & head into deep forest.
While we climb the mountain on one side, the sun does the same on the other & as we near the top, the mist-filled woods are beautifully illuminated for just a few moments..
