Welcome Back, Sun!

After a stretch of fairly lousy weather that culminated in a couple power outages due to mudslides and fallen trees on Tuesday, it’s always special to see the sun again. Yesterday morning, the skies were mostly clear and I decided to head out to North Douglas Island and watch the sun rise behind the mountains. It was a special moment, to finally see and feel those beams of bright light again, burning off the lingering fog. Living in a place where sunny days are very rare at this time of the year, I truly appreciated and savored the moment. Welcome back, sun!

North Douglas Island Waterfront

We finally took our boat north from Harris Harbor up Gastineau Channel and through the Mendenhall Bar during a high tide last week. It was pretty exciting passage, during which we enjoyed watching many familiar places from a different point of view, like these cool waterfront properties off Horizon Drive on North Douglas Island.

Fritz Cove Sunset

undefined

We have been blessed with warm and sunny summer weather. The fruits trees around town are blossoming and I have seen people swim in the local lakes. The sunsets have been nothing short of spectacular, like here in this view of Fritz Cove taken from North Douglas Island. Barely visible on the rocks near False Outer Point are two fisherman casting their rods in hopes of catching a King Salmon.

The sun sets over the Chilkat Range in this view from Highland Estates. Visible in the foreground, between North Douglas Island on the left and Auke Mountain on the right, are the Mendenhall Wetlands at low tide and Juneau International Airport.

Fritz Cove At Dusk

We continue to be blessed with clear and cold winter weather. The light is beautiful throughout the day, and even about 30 minutes before and after sunset, the landscape basks in soft colorful light which is extremely favorable to photography. The absence of shadows greatly simplifies contrast problems, and the colors are vividly saturated. I took this image at dusk yesterday evening at Outer Point on North Douglas Island, looking north over Fritz Cove and the Mendenhall Peninsula towards the Coast Mountains.
