As you approach Glenallen from Anchorage you are confronted with this amazing view of Mount Drum (if the weather allows). Even after seeing this view literally hundreds of times in all seasons I still stop and take photos. In this case it was the middle of winter and approximately -30° F. I walked out to the middle of the road to get a symmetrical shot so that the shoulder lines would mimic the shoulder lines of the mountain. The mountain is roughly 60 miles away from this point.

I agree with your symmetry effort here, Gary. The centered road, the balanced trees and that huge mountain look great. I also like the subtleness of the lighting, which adds a hint of mystery to the view.
Wow, this is a really impressive mountain. Great shot!
Also great is the fact, that after seeing this so often this view still touches you. It would be sad if we’d become indifferent for beauty, simply because the scene is well-known.
That’s lovely, Gary. I recognized that view immediately!! I think it actually looks better like this, in wintertime. The quality of the light in this is gorgeous! The detail in the large version is great.
I also see those frost heaves on the highway!!
