Night Photography

Alaska 2017: AstroPhotography -or more simply put, taking pictures after dark of the sky.. Anyway, that was sort of my photographic goal on this trip, getting the Milky Way over Denali but Mother Nature had a totally different idea and we didn’t see anything like a clear sky for over a week and at least 500 miles past Denali.. So, the first grouping below is over Rainbow Ridge 4 or so hours below Fairbanks. After a picture or two I started wondering how there could be so much light pollution out here.. Then I looked at the camera and the last pic had a little green smear and I realized it was the Aurora Borealis! Duh.. It lasted about 15-20 minutes then the clouds rolled in..

Next group was in Homer and the last was at Lake Kenai on our last night
