The monolithic mass of Denali, North America’s tallest mountain seems to have a million faces. I’ve photographed it hundreds of times, from many different locations, on the ground and from the air. It looks different from every view and the weather it generates surrounds it with an array of ever changing clouds. In early September watched the mountain for most of the day, as clouds grew and enveloped the peaks, then slowly diminished as the evening progressed. This little lakeside was a new location for me, and offered a view of Denali’s east side, revealing the north and south peaks together. The clouds in the first frame capture some soft evening color of the setting sun. I turned around and saw a full moon visible behind me, so I ran off to shoot that for a few minutes. In that short time period, the clouds dissipated revealing the two summits, and I ran back to the lake shore to grab a few more shot. Both frames were taken after sunset, which is a good admonition for the landscape photographer to not put the camera away too quickly.
