May. 10th, 2012 @ 09:32 pm what remains
We lost the sun a few weeks ago. It did its little bow, winked as it passed to do it's snowbird thing. It's return is expected in August. We hope. But we still have some light in the sky, some brilliant hours of twilight and if you happen to be in the right spot and the conditions are just right this lighting is what fantasies are made of. You can get lost in the colors, in the shades, in the blue that starts with the ice and ends in the sky.

I spent a few hours outside yesterday taking some pictures. The conditions were perfect: clear skies, a bright moon, positive F temps and little wind. What follows are some of the highlights. With the exception of the moon picture these are all HDR photos, built from a 5 photo sequence.

This might be the best photo I have ever taken:
