Mt Drum, Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

Here’s the follow up to the post of 2 days ago. I walked about 100 yards up the ridge from the pond, and found this Alaska Cotton Grass field, which made a nice foreground for the mountain, to me. The timber of the light had changed so much in just a minute or 2. I snapped a few photos here, and before I knew it, the peak started to dim. A cloud behind me blocked the rising sun’s rays, and within a few more minutes, the peak no longer glowed. Bummer. I lay on the tundra for a while, hoping for some more light, but by the time the light started to shine on the snow-capped Mt. Drum again, the warmth was gone, and a cold morning light wasn’t so great for photos – this tired cold puppy headed back to his tent for some rest.

I should be back from my Bremner – Tebay trip tomorrow, and will try to post something late tomorrow evening when I get in.

Here’s another image of this same scene:

    This shot just makes me wonder how this place would look like in spring! With the wildflowers sprouting all around, I bet you can get a lovely foreground like this and let that feeling of awe sink into the soul. Unbelievable beauty!!!

    Cheers!

    Hey Sai,

    Thanks – though there aren’t too many wildflowers in this area – it’s a pretty high plateau, and largely barren ground – lots of lichens, and smaller primary vegetations.

    Cheers

    Carl
