A few more photos from June 2005, just illustrating
the night-time sun again. I got an email from a
girlfriend recently commenting that until she
saw my photos of what it means to have
sun at night, she didn't really know what it
This photo was taken holding my camera
behind my head and accidentally upside down.
I was trying to capture a picture of the sun
at 9:30pm without looking at it. Topsy turvy
but still an interesting pic.
I was walking with my handsome hubby who
had our Lab Ebb as well as his buddy Nightro
in tow. This photo was taken moments after
the sun photo. Note the brightness but also
the long shadows. I just find this to be so surreal.
And here is a photo taken a little while later
of the Alaska state flower - the Forget-Me-Not.
You can see why people are out gardening
at 9:30pm! Plenty of daylight to do plenty of
I have to admit I am dreading the darkness though.
Even with 19-plus hours of daylight now, I'm feeling
anxiety about the dwindling light while I'm still
feeling the frantic buzz of long days.
