- Description: Denali (Mt. McKinley), the tallest mountain on the North American continent at 20,320’, creates its own cloud systems. Wind blowing from the south (left-to-right on this photo) forces moist air up the face of the mountain, cooling and forming wild clouds as it gains altitude. On this particular gorgeous mid-August day, my wife & I were camping at Byers Lake (MP 147, Parks Hwy) when these mesmerizing lenticular clouds took shape. They hovered and swayed in the sheer winds like a ghostly kite, best portrayed in black and white.
- Gear: Nikon D700, Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
