Photographer's Note

This photo was taken from the Glenn highway a bit north of Anchorage. The Chugach Mountain range is about 500 km (300 mi). Its highest point is Mount Marcus Baker, at 13,176 feet (4,016 m), but most of its summits are not especially high. However, its position along the Gulf of Alaska ensures more snowfall in the Chugach than anywhere else in the world; an annual average of over 1500 cm (600 in). The mountains are protected in the Chugach State Park and the Chugach National Forest. The World Extreme Skiing Championships are held annually in the Chugach near Valdez. The name "Chugach" is from the Eskimo tribal name Chugachmiut. It became Chugach with translations into Russian and then English.

Since we’re not travelling for the present, I’m putting together a file of photos to play on our new big screen TV, that we got so Larry can watch football Since we never watch it otherwise, I'm putting together photos to flip on the screen while we listen to music. In addition to my originals, I stupidly only saved the TE-sized version after processing. I've been doing the processing on the TV screen; photos that looked fine on my lap-top, are garish on the TV screen. Since I had my monitor color calibrated, I've gotten some comments about over-processing. It got worse after I got Lightroom; which makes it really easy to go WAAAY over the top. Let me know if this is too flat.

When I first started posing on TE in 2006, I started with a series on Alaska. Here are two other photos of this splendid mountain range that I posted back then.

As I was answering comments, I kept looking at this picture and wondering what was wrong. I finally realized that I forgot to sharpen it after I resized it. I've put the sharpened version in the WS
