Mount McKinley- Denali National Park~ Alaska – USA
This is the highest Mountain in the USA with a summit elevation of 20,320 feet (6,194 m) above sea level. The mountain is not often seen in full like this as it is usually cloaked in heavy cloud.

For three days we bore witness to this majesty. Denali – Mt McKinley.

On arrival at the lodge, the clouds began to lift in a tease, revealing only a piece of the mountain at a time. The following morning I pulled myself out of bed very early to see if by chance it was putting on a show. Unbelievably, the clouds had completely cleared and with great excitement I raced down to a vantage point and was alone with the mountain until the shadows diminished, the day began and other people arrived. On the third day, the day of our departure, the clouds returned and the mountain was again cloaked in cloud.

It is worth noting that this image was photographed around 5:30am. The sun in the Alaskan summer is shining for most part of a the time and getting morning or afternoon light is sometimes in terms of light quality one of the same !!
