I was going through some of my Alaska pics and found this one. We were on are way to Denali NP when I spotted a brown bear along the Nenana River. It was late afternoon and the sunlight on the trees and the bear was perfect. I love side light like this, it just makes everything glow. While my wife and I shot lots of pics of the bear it was just too far away. With my intentions focused on the bear I did manage to take this one shot of the spruce trees.
These spruce trees are everywhere in Denali and make up the majority of the forest; they are a photogenic tree and much much different than what we have here in the Eastern Sierra.
