    I'm sitting with my wife and her friend in the hotel lobby enjoying a coffee. As the conversation lingers on, I can see these clouds gathering over Gifu castle from the hotel's cafe window. 10 minutes go by. 15 minutes. Finally after 20 minutes, I excuse myself from the table and head back to our room to take this picture. I'm generally a patient person but there is only so much you can ask of someone.

      "Dirty old mountain all covered in smoke, she can turn you to stone so you better start doing it right." This brought a little Genesis (the band) quote to mind.
