14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sheet Of Fire (Sunset, Denali National Park)

Mount Denali was perfectly clear for the 3 days we were there late August. The only exception was the first evening, when clouds formed. This image is a portion of the South Alaska Range, just south of Mount Denali and Mount Foraker, and was taken about 12 minutes after the colors began to appear, 3 minutes before the end of the sunset.
