It seems weird to call it Mt McKinley since no one, including myself ever calls it that in conversation, but I guess that is the official name.
Anyone who has hiked on tundra can tell you how hard and slow it is to move on such soft, uneven ground. Well, now I can tell you it is even harder to run on the tundra, especially in Xtra tuffs boots, but that is what I had to do to keep “The Mountain” directly behind these massive moose. They would take 10 steps to the right, I would have to take 50!
I knew the moose would still be in velvet during this trip. That initially was disappointing, but in hindsight it did make exposing for them much easier as I didn’t have to worry about blowing out the exposure on the racks which is so easy to do.
Normally I would use a two or 3 stop hard edge graduated neutral density filter here, but I had left mine back in the truck. So I auto bracketed exposure, and I used Photo shop to manually combine two images captured two stops apart after I returned to the office.
