Photographer's Note

This is from Girnar Hill in Gujarat state, western India. The hill is studded with Hindu and Jain temples which can be reached by a staircase of reputedly 9 999 steps (according to Wikipedia there are "only" about 8 000 steps).
I came here by bus from the nearby city of Junagadh, taking off while it was still dark and starting the ascent at dawn. It was quite an experience, everyone being in a very good mood, exchanging greetings and short chats all the way up or down the hill.
This picture from 1985 was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
