Was it with a tripod ?

Thanks. No - it was handheld. I'm usually looking to catch birds in flight, so I carry my camera without a tripod

If you don't mind, I'd like to send your pic to my friend - it will get him more motivated to finish his.

This is just a snapshot, but the exact same location in 2013.

Yep - same spot. Near Stony Hill - our turnaround point on the Tundra Wilderness Tour. Rare to get a clear shot of the mountain due to clouds.

Our Airbnb had a great pano shot of Denali at sunset with a lake in the foreground. I think that photo was taken near the park road at Wonder Lake - near the end of the road at Camp Denali - about 30 miles west of our photo location. I'd like to go there, but that would probably require a stay at Camp Denali.

Also - permafrost has melting for more than a decade causing the park road to become unstable. A bunch of engineers were studying it while we were there, and a contractor was fixing settlement and rock slide damage.

Some snapshots of hummingbirds that have visited our backyard so far this year. These photos were created from frame grabs of 4K videos shot of these birds. The camera is a Lumix G9 with a Canon EF 70-200 F/4L lens and Viltrox EFM1 mount adapter.

Here's one from around there. The end of the road is a long way west of there. This is what it looks like.

Ah yes - I see that on Google Earth. Road goes far west of Camp Denali. The Shot in our Airbnb I believe was taken from the road with Wonder Lake in the foreground, Denali at sunset as the background. Wonder Lake is Southeast of Camp Denali. You would have passed it some time before you got to the end. I need to get back there.

Very nice composition.

Great pictures and all the history. We are lucky that most of these places have been saved from destruction.
