    I like using my super-telephoto lenses at times to shoot landscapes. This photo of Denali, or Mount McKinley was shot from near Savage Campground, about 70 miles from the mountain. It was shot with a 500mm lens. And yes, that foreground hill does slope down to the right.

  2. Agreat image that shows the forces of nature at work. The varied lighting makes it!
  3. I certainly is a unique view. I do think it loses a bit of the grandeur with such a compressed view. That said, I do like it.

    Wow that is very beautiful
    Love the layers and light
  5. Even at Wonder Lake, it seems like Denali is 50 miles away so a telephoto shot looks great. Cool layering, really conveys the idea of how quickly the landscape changes with altitude there.
  6. Beautiful job, well done.

    The funny thing, I was just beside the road. A number of people stopped, and looked through their binoculars trying to see the animal or bird I must have been photographing. I'd hear them whisper "yea, I think I see it. Is it a fox?".
  8. ROFLOL!!! Where? A fox? Maybe a squirel!

    Great image. Wonderful colors and execution of your vision.

  10. Nice image - I love compressed mountain landscapes. Too bad about that low gray cloud on top but it kind of adds to the atmosphere.

    This is great. It's like a monster watching you through a fog. Mike
  12. Wow! Amazing how distances get warped when a long lens is used.
