Another Denali Autumn

Denali National Park and Preserve is vast - larger than some states, and often referred to as North America's Serengeti. While it is teeming with wildlife, the seemingly endless expanse of tundra feels empty and void of life at times. The light can remain flat for hours, even days, making it feel impossible to capture an image that translates the true beauty and immensity of the park. Most of the images I've taken amount to a mere snippet of the days, weeks and months I've spent there since my first visit in 1996. Yet something draws me back nearly every year, even though I don't always return with stunning new images. I guess it's more out of tradition that I love to spend a few days there in autumn, seeking solitude and gentle reminders of why I choose to live in Alaska.
