Road to special places

    Down the valley towards Denali on this beautiful day, with the (one) park road wending its way. Similar view to this image, but without the manipulation.


    Prints (framed or unframed) of this can be purchased from my shop on ImageKind.

      Wonderful view. I like those colors from the fresh green grass to the white snow beneath the blue sky. The road drives my eyes to the mountain. Look at those tiny people on the grass, what must they be looking for? Mushrooms? XD

      Can I use it as a wallpaper in my computer?

      Not sure what they're looking for, although my memory was that they were hiking rather than stationary, so I don't think they were looking for something small like mushrooms.

      You're more than welcome to use it as a wallpaper on your computer. Many thanks for the interest in my photograph!

      I've been there and I know how rare it is to get weather like that! Beautiful! I have a similar shot... but with less blue sky.

      Ditto on the shot! We were there in 2007 with my brother and I really liked that Denali Mountain (natives despise Mt McKinley name) makes its own weather. Look at the low hanging clouds circling Denali perfectly. We also got off the bus at Fish Camp - the little crossing at the bottom of the hill - and walked up the trail to get a better view of Denali and we were rewarded around the bend. My nephew rested in the Tundra for at least 1 hour. I also got some nice video. We were also lucky with the weather as a clearing front just had passed through. We were told the mountain can only be fully seen 30% of the time. Taking the early bus we were rewarded with a Grizzly mom and 3 of her cubs crossing our path. We could almost have touched them. Congratulation on a fine picture.
