Denali
Lens: DA 18-135mm Camera: K3 Photo Location: Denali National Park, Alaska 
Posted By: ozwald, 11-16-2016, 02:58 PM

Privileged to be one of (apparently) only 30% of visitors to see Denali almost in its entirety, i.e. without it being completely covered in cloud. Formerly named Mt. McKinley, Denali is the tallest mountain in North America at just over 20,000 ft (apologies to Americans who obviously already know this).

Do like a good mountain shot and these certainly qualify for that.

Mountains have always held a fascination for me. Something to do with the insignificance of man.

Yes, I know the feeling. Here you have captured how majestic and awe inspiring these mountains are. It appears as though the clouds were finding their way to be in the right place and right time just for these photographs. The same feelings I had when I first saw the Rocky Mountains. I just thought, "Well, God Bless America."

Thanks again,

Antonio

A good high mountain shot always seems to have a hint of mystery and magic - these do.

I was also one of the fortunate 30% to see this magnificent mountain not covered by clouds! It takes your breath away to see it's beauty.

#2 with the fall colors is my favorite; although #1 is awesome also!

I also have "been there seen it" completely w/ no clouds, which is ultra rare...have a pic of it (taken w/ a film Pentax) somewhere, yet also have a 16X20 framed on the wall.
