Final Frame Winner: Sara Chieco

Denali National Park, Alaska, USA
Canon 5D Mk III, Canon 70-200mm f/4L, f/11, 1/8000sec, ISO 1250

I had just been across the old Denali Highway, which is extremely beautiful and equally hazardous. Washboard road with potholes as big as the car every few feet extended my driving for hours and hours. I was still a bit wired from the constant vigilance and got into Denali just in time for the last light.

On the way there it was cloudy and had started snowing (in September, very early) and I thought that this could potentially spoil my plans. No pictures for that tonight. Very disappointing since it was supposed to rain for the next few days I was going to be there. Yet, as the fog started to clear I could see the full circle of the sun. The fog was so dense that I thought it just might allow me to capture a picture and showcase its beauty. I stopped the car, captured a few frames and managed to catch the sun before it sunk too low. It felt very otherworldly at the time and hopefully the picture conveys that.
