Chapel by the Lake

This is the old chapel by Auke Lake. I took this shot in November (with a few photoshop embellishments). The weather has been pretty dismal lately, so digging up older photos to post.

Cabin in the woods

I saw the (Northern) Lights

After living here in Alaska for over a year, I finally saw the northern lights. Friday night brought a nice display of the the northern lights, mostly in shades of green (thats the only color I saw as I was freezing my toes and fingers off waiting patiently for the perfect shot). If you click on this first photo - in the enlarged version you should be able to see the Big Dipper perfectly. Posted by Picasa
