Mount McKinley, Denali to the locals, is immense. It towers over 20,000 feet which should give some perspective to the cloud level depicted here, which is probably around 4 to 5 thousand feet. The mountain generates its own weather system and as such many are disappointed when they are unable to see the mountain at all. This view, according to the locals, can be somewhat rare even in summer.
Just wanted to say how much I love your picture. My favorite by far.
...Thank you Caroline for your comment..it is also one of my favorites from our trip in 2006. In photography, there are many skills to master, but being in the right place, at the right time, with the right light, well this was one of those moments. I am glad you enjoyed.
Very nice shot. VOTED! Greetings from Croatia, @na travizi
