Eluded but not Skunked

Last night it was perectly clear in spite of the cloudiness forecast.
The northern lights were forecast at Medium, which sometimes gets good results.
So I packed up my gear and headed out.
I caught the sunset from Glenn Alps, anticipating the Aurora at nightfall.
The Aurora didn’t happen, nothing at all that I saw, and I gave up at around 2am.
Here is my consolation, sunset No. 71 on my flickr page.

Happy Tuesday, now where is that snow we’re supposed to get huh?

    Beautiful! You know what\’s funny? As I scrolled down looking at the photos, I squinted each time the sun came onto the screen. My mom always told me not to look directly at it . . .

    thanks for dropping by and leaving a note. it made my day. i am having a bit of difficulty adjusting to this move. never been really on my own before. lots of mixed emotions going on. but i have to get it pulled together \’cause life is going to happen with or without me. thank you for the wonderful pictures, they remind me daily that there is a life outside of my own little world.

    I like all 3 pictures.  I always like pictures of snow and mountains.  However,  the panarama is awesome.  Thanks, Steve.  You are so right….you weren\’t "skunked".

    The first shot makes me cold just looking at it.  I like the panorama.  What did you use for stiching? Whatever you used did an excellent job.
