Mount Kinabalu from KK

Back on the coast at sunset, the mountain looked as if it was erupting. Mount Kinabalu has never been volcanic but is growing at a rate of 5mm each year. A huge granite mass is being pushed up by pressure under the earths mantle.. The granite is so hard it resists the constant weathering.

Same view on full zoom

and about 20 mins later. We were so lucky to get such a clear day.
