Friday’s Sunset Sky

I went out to see the sunset last night.
Not a showy glowing one, as the horizon was fairly hazy.
I stuck around after the sun had set, and was rewarded by some nice color and texture.
The orange sky reflecting off ice and open water of Cook Inlet

Wave patterns in a sky too immense to describe.
The volcanos on the horizon are about 100 miles away and 9,000 feet in elevation

After the sunset I noticed a sliver of a moon preparing to set also,
so I set up with the 500mm lens on the tripod and got this one.
Later today I am off to go "upcountry" as we say to shoot the northern lights.
See ya later!

    Hey Steve!I can see that bazooka lens of yours is gonna keep you real busy! I love the first one, it is as if the heavens are opening up, and the light from that moon shot is fantastic. Around here, we don\’t go "upcountry" we "go down the County (not country)"…as you have probaly figured out, there is no "up" here!  Have fun on your shoot, bring us back some winners,sending you love and warm North Carolina hugs and wishing you lotsa luck on your shoot!

    Hi STEVE…. Been a long while since I been here..( with dial up it takes a long time for the page to load the gorgeous pictures.) Sometimes it freezes and then I have to start all over again. Anyway.. today the GOD\’S are smiling and I am here. I am just amazed and know you must be every single day up there. Tell me can you see or tell by the changes up there how the invironment is changing. Maybe you have answered that before in a post but I would think that living there like you do, you would be able to
    literally see the differences say from last year to this year. We are getting an artic blast of at least 10 to 20 below in our wind chills
    tomorrow so I will be getting some of your AIR to sample.. Well take care and stay well..  : )

    Hi Steve 🙂
    Love that top sunset image.  The water is so pretty with the colours reflecting.  Bet you\’re having much fun with the new lens. 
    Have a safe and productive trip today.  Hope the Lights put on a great show for you (and us!)
    Barb 🙂

    Have a nice week-end and a good time "up there" and let that new lens of yours show you what new tricks are "hidden" in it …
