Finger mountain, on the Dalton Highway is a notoriously windy place. It is more of a broad hill with an expansive view than any sort of real mountain. Granite protrusions dot the landscape and make for some interesting features. I grabbed this photo on a very quick stop during one of my arctic photo tours, and while the image works o.k., a tripod sure would have helped. But, it was one of those quick run and grab a shot deals, which did not afford the time for more perfect execution. It is a single image and a blend or HDR of some sort would have give more definition to the sky. I’m still amazed however, that shadow detail could be extracted to the degree it was. I love these digital files!
