SkyWatch Friday, Weekend Reflections / Midnight Sun

Please click on photo to enlarge!
This float plane is tied for the night.  
It is midnight and the sun just set moments before I took this shot.
Other float planes were coming back after their scenic flights throughout the day.

The first photo shimmers with gold!

PLANETS HURTLING THROUGH THE SKY

Planets hurtling through the sky,
Can you tell me one thing: Why
Are you intent on fleeing
Far from human sight and seeing?

Midnight sun in Alaska is so bright and gorgeous! Also at the same time, it is tranquil and soothing. I love the stunning reflections in the ripples. Just beautiful! Have a great day!

You don't get much sleep as moments later the sun rises again. We experience the midnight sun in Norway and the Prof at both polar regions.

Lovely shots.

The light play in the 1st shot is too good!

Dorian Susan said...

Great series. I have no big desire to travel to Alaska, but now that you mention the long light....and show these lovely scenes, I may have to change my mind.

Pat Tillett said...

Love these! I'm thinking you just had an adventure in Alaska.

Karen said...

Fabulous shots. I would love to go to Alaska.

Malyss said...

I dream to fly to Alalska once in my life! only the name "Anchorage" makes me dream! and even more with your fabulous pictures!

Dianne said...

Wonderful captures - I particularly love the second shot with the ever so still water reflections.

James said...

Stunning! The lighting and reflections are amazing! I really want to go to Alaska!

Sounds like you had a great time at the Cowgirl Cafe. I ate on the patio too. Brisket,bbq beans etc it reminded me of Texas. :)

Shirley said...

Sightseeing by float plane sounds like an incredible adventure! Alaska is extraordinarily beautiful.

Francisca said...

Lovely, Carolyn. I bet Alaska has some very special scenery.

Love the dock shot! Discovered you on Weekend Reflections ... new follower!

SquirrelQueen said...

You were up late to get these gorgeous shots. I love the reflections in the first two.

The first summer I lived in Anchorage I had a really hard time sleeping with it still being light outside. This was really bad for my work. I finally got some very thick drapes for my bedroom.

Linnea said...

Such fabulous light conditions!

These are beautiful! My fave is the first one which I think is absolutely beautiful and in need of a story. :-)
