“The Mountain,” as it is called. Or Mt. McKinley or, probably most accurately, Denali. Regardless, to see it is moving. Since it is not visible more than 2 days out of 3, I counted myself very fortunate to see it 4 of the days I was within range in Alaska. “Range” is more than 100 miles! At 20,320 ft. and snow-covered, it is impressive from wherever it can be seen.
What is also true about Denali is that it changes often in the light. Since it creates its own weather, the clouds that usually form around it are nearly always changing. But even cloudless, as it was on the first day I saw it, the vast white peak takes on the color of the sky throughout the day.
Needless to say, I made many photographs of Denali, some just a few seconds apart in time. Some will doubt my sanity. I enjoy seeing it in all these many ways. Here are a few—and I’ll share more over the next few days.
