Week 10 #16 Frame Within A Frame


We have been traveling to Alaska for almost 40 years. My father in law moved the family to Fairbanks in 1974 when he was a Chief Engineer for the construction of the Alaskan Pipeline. When the pipeline was completed they moved to Anchorage. My in-laws are no longer living but, we still have family in Anchorage. I have lost count of the number of times we have visited and are so fortunate to enjoy the beauty of Alaska. One thing I never tire of is the anticipation of possibly viewing Mt.Mckinley/Denali situated 133 miles from Anchorage. We usually are there in the summer or fall so odds of a completely clear day to see the mountain are only 33%. During all our visits I have seen numerous partial views but, only a hand full of full views. A full view literally can take your breath away it is just so magnificent. I wasn’t lucky enough to see any of the mountain this last trip in July but, in the lobby of our hotel were 3 beautiful photos of Mt.Mckinley/Denali in all its glory. I took this picture with this theme in mind “Frame Within A Frame”.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  1. We lived in SE Alaska for several years and I never tired of the astounding beauty that surrounded me. We were also lucky enough to spend 2 summers on the Kenai Peninsula. Thanks for sharing this piece of heaven on earth.
