This photo was taken from the Parks Highway, the only highway for travel between Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska. Denali National Park sits near the halfway point between the 2 cities and is about a 4-5 hr drive from Anchorage. At 20,320 feet, Mt McKinley is the tallest mountain in North America and towers above the mountain range below it in this image. Many days it is clearly visible from Anchorage 160 miles away. Each summer, climbers flock to Denali National Park to attempt the summit of Mt McKinley.

Photographer: Ronnie Glover (Gig Harbor, WA, USA)
Photography took a backseat while Ronnie obtained his college degree. After graduation, he purchased his first camera but was unable to produce the images that he saw in his mind. He then took a few continuing education class to learn the technical aspects of the camera and realized there was so much more to learn about photography. So Ronnie enrolled in the professional program at Southeastern Center for the Arts in Atlanta. The school was operated by Jeanne & Neil Chaput de Saintonge, who currently operate Rocky Mountain School of Photography. He spent 14 years living in Alaska and this gave him unbelievable opportunities to experience nature and capture many images. Ronnie also enjoy travel photography and the experience of different cultures. It is his wish that his images will expose others to the beauty of nature and other cultures. He invites everyone to enjoy his gallery and feel free to contact him with any comments.
