    Two hikers walk along the road leading towards Mt Denali (formerly Mt McKinley), the highest mountain in North America. It has been said that only 30% of visitors to Denali National Park see the mountain because it is often completely covered with clouds. The deep shadows in the foreground and bright highlights (even with a graduated nd filter) in the distance seemed best suited to BW. I did a little burning and dodging to bring out the vast solitude, the road, and the existing contrasts.

    "What a beautiful frame with the tiny persons at the beginning of their journey. I feel like I want to join them, I want to discover what they have in front of them, what a scenery! The curved line that leads the way, the imaginary horizontal line in the upper third, the shapes and the texture that those shadows bring to the image, everything works. WOW!" - Gloria Salgado Gispert
