The access in and out of Denali National Park is a two-lane gravel road with a 30mph speed limit. Unless you're lucky enough to win a "private vehicle" pass in the lottery they hold every year, your only transport into the park is old converted school buses. Having the "private vehicle" pass allowed me to travel along the park road whenever and wherever I wanted, but I always had to give-way to the buses which had priority.


This image was captured on my second day there... which it hadn't rained or snowed in over a week. So the road was very dusty and you have to travel slow not to kick up too much dust. Unless you're this guy! I was up on a ridge waiting for sunset when I could see this one bus one the road behind me from miles away driving up a streaming, billow cloud. I was wanting to photograph the landscape behind me but need an extra element to make the image dynamic. The bus hurling down the gravel road was perfect... and the pronounced veil of dust stringing out from behind balanced the composition.
