Cat Eyes

Named for the two cat eyes glowing just below the horizon in the right 1/3 of the frame.

This is a 2 frame panorama, sized to 12.73 percent of the original.

This is Cook Inlet Alaska from near Anchorage. The Distant mountains are the Mount Spur Massive, a two mile high strato volcano complex that is still active, the last major activity was in 1992, with three large eruptions in different months of the year. The distance to the far shore shown is about 40 miles, and about 70 miles to the top of Spur.

    40 miles. It looks like half a mile from this prospective. They are indeed like cat\’s eyes even unto rudimentary ears above the slightly rounded dome of the forehead. 🙂 The color and the photograph is outstanding, as they always are.

    Amazing! I can\’t believe how far away it is. Looks like you could practically reach out and touch it. Love the cats eyes and the colors. The water just seems so fluid with motion and so very serene.Greetings from the south…

    Thanks for the info, without it, it\’s hard to appreciate the scale of the picture. Does anyone know how likely it is to erupt again, and if it\’s likely to hit the mainland?It looks beautifully peaceful in the evening light. The cat\’s eyes are intriguing, as is the reflection of the sunset in the water.

    I am not sure what the cat eyes were, probably reflections off some snow fields, there were many others as the sun skittered along the skyline. Predicting volcano eruptions seems very sketchy in the long term, and maybe a bit worse than weather prediction in the short term. There is plenty of science thrown at the problem, they just don\’t follow patterns very well it seems.

    There are tiny gaps between the mountains and the clouds allowing the red sun to come through. That what it looks like to me. I just can\’t image living somewhere all year where there are so many beautiful sunsets.
