The Mountain by juddpatterson The Mountain by juddpatterson
Denali, "The Great One", is 20,320 ft tall and is simply the most fantastic mountain that I've ever seen. It's hulking shape routinely hides for a week or more in a row. In my case it had been hidden for 10 days and less than an hour after this image it was hidden once again. As soon as I saw it clearly I began to snap photographs. It was a very bad time for the aperture on my 24-105mm lens to begin sticking...I only managed a few properly exposed images before permanently switching back to my 17-40mm lens. Oh well, I feel so fortunate to have seen the mountain that has inspired many...

No, it was taken at a random tundra pond somewhere on the way to Wonder Lake. I bailed from the bus and just hiked around.

Congratulation to you Judd !

I have heard as well that this mountain is pretty hard to see and hidden most of the time. I visited a bit of Alaska down to Haines, but after exploring Yukon and Northwest Territories in Canada, I didn't have enough time to go farther as I planned, because distances are so huge there that I ran out of time... Another time for Denali, hopefully, some others did go there to show us photos of how it looks like ;)
