Comments - Dramatic view of pilgrims making the climb up a steep hill to a shrine atop a mountain. A torii gate and stone lanterns mark the path, the way framed by tall trees with enormous trunks. A light rain falls straight down through the hazy sky, a sunset glow spreading along the horizon. An impressive vista.
