Land of the Midnight Sun
Our visit to Alaska this year took place during the longest days of summer. I was fascinated by the constant sun which glowed bright red with the smoky haze in the air- which I found challenging to capture with my camera. The photo below was taken about 11:15pm from a viewpoint in Eagle River. The sky was actually lighter than it appears here- and the sun was much redder (notice the reflection in the water!). I will be posting more of my sun images in the near future.
