    I hadn't known there was to be a full moon Saturday night. We don't pay much attention to such things in June around here because it's hardly dark enough to notice. At any rate, I got up just before 5 and there it was about to set over the mountains across Kachemak Bay. I set the camera on two stacked tables being as the tripod was in my truck 50 yards away up a goat trail, and I was in my... well, you get the picture. :rolleyes:

  2. Both shots are beautiful but the first is best, as Im sure you know.
    The monochrome blues with the glowing moon make this a stunning image.
    Looks cold!

    Thanks Doug, Chris, Gale, Tk and Randy. Yes, looks cold but it was 50f at the time; about average for that time of a June morning in this neck of the woods.
  8. I am glad you rolled out of bed early to get this shot. They are both excellent.

    Beautiful, I also love the first one. wish I had this kind of view any where with in an hour from me would be great but I am sure there is disadvantages to the area as well. I mean for me, 50f in june is down right cold.
  11. Wonderful photos Bill, I especially like the ...sea otters detail :smile:

    Thanks, Gordon.

    Aren't we all?

    We're used to the cool mornings. Thanks for the compliment.

    Thanks, Panos. Although I'd seen the sea otters the night before, I didn't know they were still there in the AM until I Downloaded the images.
  13. Good shots Bill. #1 for me.

    We could double our recent average temps and still not meet your 100 plus of the last few days. :eek:
