Denali Beauty - Denali National Park, Alaska

There are times that taking a good landscape photograph can be a challenge, particularly when you are on a bus tour. Such were the challenges of our visit to Denali National Park. While I would have preferred to drive a rental car on the park road, private vehicles are only allowed to drive 15 miles into the park from June to September. Only shuttles and bus tours are allowed beyond the 15 mile marker. So, bus tour it was. Taking images of a landscape while traveling in a moving bus can be difficult while trying to minimize the reflections from the windows. Another factor is the speed of the bus. I never like to shoot in a "spray and pray" mode, but sometimes it can be the only way to get a decent photo. In this case, I took a ten shot burst and this was the only one that made the cut.
