Denali on a Clear Day

We photographers know how what we do can be influenced both positively and negatively by the weather. Overcast skies, rain, snow, wind, sun angle and time of day. Consider the photo below.


It’s about 200 miles from Summit Lake Recreational Area located near Anchorage (Willow) to Denali National Park. An unusually clear summertime day resulted in some spectacular images. Note the snow covered Denali mountains in the right horizon. Then, closer still with a 200mm lens.





  1. Great pics, and I’m glad you emphasized “on the clear day.” My family is from Alaska, and I always hear people (understandably) disappointing that often, and from relatively close, they can’t see the mountain. Your work is beautiful!
