There are not many times a city slicker gets a 360-degree view of unspoilt wilderness. In this case, I was able to shoot the furthest reaches of the Klondike gold rush region while standing atop The Dome outside Dawson City.
I had just photographed a golden sunset in late August 2008. After the sun had disappeared silently over the historic horizon, I revelled in the complete silence and the fact that no matter which way I turned, the Yukon presented a simple, unspoilt vista that stretched forever.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K200D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F5.6, 1/90 sec, ISO 400, focal length 300mm.
