    Wow those stars tracked a lot in just 12 minutes. I never woulda thunk it. Has it been warm where you are too?

    Ok, what planet were you on with these out of this world pictures?
    Great job Steve! I saw your videos (applaude!) I hope you do more.

    Love that first image.  The mountain takes on that ghostly atmosphere at night under long exposures. 
    I didn\’t even check the skies tonight.  Glad the light show is still on up there!  When do you sleep? 🙂
    Have another great photo night tonight!
    Barb 🙂

    Steve – please add a thesaurus to your site so we who feast on your photos can find words to express our amazement at your talent and at the beauty of Alaska – words fail me.  ttfn ~ tressie

    Great ! I like the "trail" made by the stars … Well, yes, Steve, I also wonder when you sleep ??!!
    Anyway, thanks so much for sharing these wonders with us …

    I am amazed at your night exposures. The clarity and colors (almost golden) just amaze me – do you edit them or are they naturally like this?
    These pictures bring home just how much I miss living in the mountains – even in the winter. Truly majestic!

    I\’m with Vieille!!  When DO you sleep?  It can\’t be at night, cause I did an entry at midnight or so, then you left a comment between then and now–and I just got up!  You should still be in bed…………….being an hour or two behind our time zone.    Hmmmmm….
    Denali is quite awe inspiring.  I can just sit in front of your picture and feel \’hozoji\’ flow………this time the \’Re\’ in the Universal  \’Ki\’.  Wow…ooooooooo…………ahhhhhhhhhhhhh……

    I edit my photos with Paint Shop Pro.
    Generally I only adjust the saturation, never alter the color.
    I probably should just adjust the calibration on my camera, but I like to get the most neutral setting I can to give me maximum flexibility later.
    One exception is night shots with manmade light present such as the night shot with the stars tracking here,
    I adjusted the hue to make the snow more white.
    Thanks for asking!

    Steve! Does you mother know you stay out that late?! That is almost time for me to be getting up.
    I love the shot of Denali.

    Okay … you can get breathtaking shots of the Alaskan Wilderness but can you get one like this?

  11. Kimmy says:

    Holy cow.. what were you doing up at 3am taking photos man?? lol They were so worth it though! I so want to visit Alaska one day. Your photos just create more anxiety for me. lol
