Start of the Night Shift

The last couple nights have been a good transition for me to the night shift.
Last night I went out early enough to catch the sunset before looking for the Aurora.
Here are a few scenes…
 
 
A Sundog Sunset over Cook Inlet

Mount Spurr, an active volcano, is to the right of the saddle.
 
 Sunset Pan 58-59 a 850
 
Now I am off to drive up north to hunt up some Northern Lights!

    Steve, will you ever get to display your photos at an art musuem?  This is the work of an artist with your camera.  Fasinating.

    1st & last – something about that winding river of gold not to mention I have a fascination for volcanoes – be careful out there!

    That\’s the kind of hunting I appreciate !!!! And the volcano picture appeals a lot to me.
    Daylight must be increasing tremendously by now … to get to the midnight sun around the solar solstice.
    I am just wondering what kind of fantastic stories you will send us by then ….
    Thank you so much for sharing those adventures with your friends living in less blessed (?!) areas …
     
    Hugs from Belgium.
