I captured this scene from a train between Skagway, Alaska and the Yukon border this past summer. I had hoped in vain for a little sun, but thought the greens were luscious even without the blue skies.

    This is a very beautiful capture of the Alaskan landscape, Don. I remember this place from the White Pass and Yukon Railway. It makes me want to go back.

    Perfect even without the blue sky. In fact, those dark clouds draw the eye back down to the beautiful landscape.

    You got a beautiful photo and did not need the sun! The colors are great, I really like the clouds above the distant mountains and like Susan said, they help to draw the eye back down to the beautiful landscape.

    That would probably be the view the the old pioneer goldlminers would have seen as they crossed the river in search of gold. Colour is so sharp.
