Congratulations to Todd Salat for his photo of Denali which is today's Photo Of The Day. The photo was submitted to the Cloudscapes Assignment. Salat writes about the photo, "Denali, 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."
The Cloudscapes Assignment is currently open for submissions.
