Description The Park Road in Denali National Park, Alaska, winding through the valley towards Denali (Mt. McKinley), the highest point in North America.Denali National Park is roughly the size of Massachusetts, with only this single road penetrating into its interior, running roughly 90 miles into the park before ending at Kantishna (just past Wonder Lake). Most visitors travel this route on one of the park's shuttle buses, some of which are visible on the road in this photograph.We were very lucky to have this extraordinarily clear view of the valley and the mountain, as the park is typically under heavy clouds which hid the mountains.This makes an excellent wall mount, or a smaller print in a desk or table top frame.
Nic McPhee, Morris, MN Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement I got into (minor) trouble when I was probably 10 or so for burning a whole role of film on an old metal goose-neck lamp and the patterns the light from it made on the desk. One could claim that even then I was exploring ideas of light and form, although I clearly wouldn't have used that sort of language at the time. From the early days, though, I was fascinated by strange little things and developed a reputation for slowing everyone down so I could take a picture of some rock or twig. I love light and shadow, and extraordinary details of often ordinary things, and photography is an important part of how I see and experience events.
I've posted hundreds of my photographs on flickr; also feel free to visit my blog at http://UnhinderedByTalent.com/Phi/
