After skiing yesterday I spotted the moon again,
so took a few photos from the trailhead parking area.
I often see jets coming in at this location,
and had fun lining this one up with terrestrial objects.
The afternoon saw me once again watching the sunset by the inlet.
The show was mostly low on the horizon and in reflected light on the water and ice.
Cook Inlet has some of the largest tidal fluctuations in the world.
They are in the 30 foot range between extreme low and high tides.
In spite of the big tides and strong currents ice sometimes blocks shipping
and ships here must be armored to break through it.
It is a powerful site to stand and watch as the current
moves the floating ice at more than ten miles per hour right in front of you.
Color of the day. gold on a field of blue.
