This page begins with January 14th and some photos taken from in front of the house while looking to the south.  Some of them are adjusted, and identified as so, while some of them have been "High Dynamic Range" Toned via Photoshop for interesting effects.  There are some sunrise time photos of Denali, North America's highest peak, which were taken on January 15th from an overlook a couple of miles from our house.  From Rows 7 - 10 inclusive are some photos of Kazuya's Baked Delights.  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

Begin January 14th - 25th
  This first photo was taken from in front of our house on January 14th at 11:06 AM. The second shot is the same, but has been adjusted for exposure. The third image is also the same as the first, but has been "High Dynamic Range" Toned via Photoshop for this somewhat interesting effect.

  Now it's January 15th and we had to go past an overlook on Hagelbarger Drive. As we were driving by at 10:18 AM the sun was illuminating the southern sky and due to the fact that Denali is 20,310 feet (6,190.5 m) the sun was already shining upon it. We just had to stop and take some photos. The first photo in this row is not adjusted at all, just as the camera captured it in Automatic Mode. The second shot is adjusted a tiny bit because it was underexposed. It was taken using Shutter Speed Priority. The third shot is unadjusted, but was additionally zoomed compared to the previous two shots.

  Here is a second adjustment of the third shot in Row 3 and it is followed by a "High Dynamic Range" Toned version of the third shot in Row 3. The third shot here was taken on January 25th at 10:01 AM as the sun was edging it's way up towards the horizon. Everything was amazingly red-orange in color, though the camera could not capture the brilliance of it.

  Here are two more shots of the amazing colors we saw on January 25th while the sun was coming up to the horizon. The second image is the same as the first one, but adjusted in an attempt to bring out the colors more.
