Adventure in Alaska--Day One 6/17/2012


We left Portland, Oregon at 4:30 p.m. with a layover in Seattle, Washington where we watched the sunset at 9 p.m.  Our flight left shortly after that for Anchorage, Alaska.  During the 3 1/2 hour flight it never got totally dark and shortly before landing in Anchorage we saw the sun come back up.  Sadly enough I had put my camera away under the seat in front of me as we were going to land shortly.  I say sadly because I couldn't get it back out quickly enough to catch the most incredible light I've ever seen.  We came down through the clouds and when we saw the mountain peaks, the underside of the clouds and the ocean we found they were bathed in the most amazing shades of red.  As any photographer knows these sights are fleeting.  I did capture this light in the image above and had to be satisfied with that.
