Debra, fantastic colors in the photos. I would imagine the limited hours of daylight would take some getting used to. Thanks.

I grew up in Anchorage and fondly remember visiting Homer.  Great pictures Debra, I'm going to steal one of them for my desktop wallpaper.

I love Alaska. They say North Idaho is the Alaska of the lower 48. Would you agree?

Hi Debra, Nice sunsets indeed. I spent a long time this morning learning about composing sunset photos and the optimization of colors. Alaska must have some astounding sunrises as well.
