Given the curved horizon, I think the camera used for the original picture had a wide angle lens.
Thanks to DBD and GoogleEarth, the picture below is a good match.
In the picture above: Ellery Lk and Tioga Lk are snow-covered lakes above the wheel. Tioga Pass entrance is behind the wing strut. Tioga Pass entrance on Tioga Pass are in the "V" formed by the wing strut and the vertical window. Mt Dana is hidden by the plane's body, left of the wheel.
