Sunset light and colors over the Alaska Range and the Susitna River – Talkeetna, Alaska
Caught this rare moment of evening light rays filtering through the clouds on to the Alaska Range and the Susitna River in Talkeetna. Alaksa, land of the midnight sun, does have beautiful summer sunsets.
This image shows the south view of the Alaska Range. Mt McKinley is off to the right of the frame. Looking for a good sunset location in Talkeetna? I’d get to the banks of the Susitna River.
I wished I could have gotten on higher ground or hiked beyond the tree lines to get a cleaner frame, but didn’t have enough time.

Ruth’s Glacier landing during McKinley flight from Talkeetna, Alaska.
During a sunny summer day, Alaska is as spectacular as it gets, especially from the air. Here’re two sample aerial shots: a pilot view of McKinley and one of the many snow peaks along the Alaska Range. After I finish posting other Alaska photos shot during my trip, I might return to this series and select more to post as I shot many aerial photos during our flight from Talkeetna to see Mt McKinley up close.
