Leave me a comment below and let me know what specific changes you see in the photo pair.

The photo I posted above is a cropped version of the image that came out of my camera.  Have a look at the next photo to see the full uncropped image.

For all the photography nerds, here’s some information about the camera gear and settings of my repeat of the 1963 photo.  I used a Nikon D7000 DSLR camera with a Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G  zoom lens set at 26mm on a Gitzo GT2541L tripod with a Really Right Stuff BH-40 ballhead.  My camera was set to an aperture of f/11, shutter speed of 1/80 of a second, and ISO of 100.

This project was made possible by support from:  Denali National Park and Preserve, Denali Education Center, and Alaska GeographicMurie Science and Learning Center.

Check back often, as I have dozens of other repeat photo pairs from my project that I’ll be posting in the future.

Thanks,

Ron Karpilo
