The dramatic Takshanuk Mountains, surrounding Haines Alaska, are momentarily visible during a short cloud clearing.
I was set up on one of the eagle outloks along the Chilkat River near Haines Alaska. It had been heavily overcast since I arrived in Haines. Briefly, very briefly, the late morning clouds cleared revealing the dramatic Takshanuk Mountains with the sun subtly highlighting the upper peaks. I momentarily stopped taking pictures of bald eagles and quickly made this delicate image of the mountains just peeking out from the clouds, which enveloped the mountains very soon after I clicked the shutter.
