Two Views of Denali

Denali In Early AM Light

This was taken around Mile 5 of the Spur leading into Talkeetna. The morning sunlight of November 8, 2013 is producing an ‘Alpen Glow’ effect on the mighty mountain

Denali Noon 11082013

Here’s almost the same view of the ‘Old Man’ taken maybe three hours later on the same date (11/08/13); notice the long shadows?  These serve to illustrate just how low on the horizon the November sun really is as this image was taken around 12:15 AKST and that’s just half an hour before the solar maximum for that date!
