On a trip to Alaska, my wife and I took a photo flight around Mt. McKinley. That early morn, the weather was very bleak and disappointing with heavy overcast. As we approached the base of the mountains, the closer we got the worse it got. I was beginning to worry about a major expenditure with no photos to show for it so I started snapping shots of anything I could see which was not much. The pilot was forced to fly under the clouds as he followed a glacier into the mountain range. Since we were flying under the clouds and the glacier was increasing in altitude, the distance between the ground and us was diminishing. As we got closer to the ground we were able to see huge boulders that originally appeared as rocks. We both realized how our depth perception was so maladjusted to the reality of it. The clouds continued to get thicker with every passing second as water droplets were streaking across the windows. I couldnt tell if it was the dampness of the clouds or actual rain. The colors were very striking and I mentioned this to the pilot. He said, The colors (of which I thought were from the soil) are from the ground vegetation. The blue berry bush has a very distinct brown and maroon color.
