I write a monthly “Photography In The National Parks” column for the National Parks Traveler. I try to gear the column for any type of photography, from smartphone to point-and-shoot to SLR. I will own up that quite a few of my tips involve things for SLRs, like Neutral Density and Polarizing filters, but for the most part, the tips and techniques I include are for any sort of photographer. One of the tips I emphasize in many of my articles for this column is to visit (re-visit) a favorite spot during different seasons, weather conditions, and times of the day. The images above, taken during an August stay at Camp Denali in Denali National Park & Preserve, were captured during the morning hours, but on different days and under different weather conditions. As you can see, they all look a little different, don’t they?

Good Morning!

Early Morning In Denali

The morning view from my cabin in Denali National Park & Preserve

I recently finished up an article for future publication in the National Parks Traveler, dealing with photographic themes. In the article, I mention I tend to capture sunrise shots (if I can) in every park I visit. This was one such sunrise image, taken during my stay at Camp Denali in Denali National Park & Preserve, in Alaska.

On a side note, I’m glad its getting lighter earlier in the mornings, now. Of course, that means I have to get up earlier in order to get to a prime spot for sunrise shots 🙃

Nugget Pond: Same Place, Different Time and Day

Nugget Pond Reflection

I‘m a bad blogger, I know I am.  It’s been a month, right, since I last posted? Until recently, I’ve been traveling, then I had a food photo session last weekend and now  am preparing for a wedding photoshoot in a couple of weeks and – oh yeah – I have my day job with which to contend.

I actually have an upcoming article that will be published in the National Parks Traveler, the link of which I’ll provide in a new blog post.  For now, though, here’s something I wanted to post for your viewing pleasure.

Remember my last article that was published for the National Parks Traveler?  It dealt with returning to the same scene in a national park but during different seasons, different times of day, and different weather patterns in order to get totally different looks for the same place.

Well, I applied this  during my recent visit to Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska, while staying at Camp Denali.  The scene you see is Nugget Pond, situated right in front of Camp Denali’s lodge building.  Time of day was either morning or afternoon.  The weather ranged from sunny to overcast to stormy, with clouds in between.

Enjoying my first cup of coffee for the morning on the porch of the Potlatch Building.  Do I look a little tired?  Well, I probably was, from all of the activities in which I’d been involved and with plenty more fun ahead of me.

Stay tuned for my upcoming article about photographing in Denali National Park that will be published in the National Parks Traveler.
