Last week, I was cruising on the Crown Princess with my 11 year old Grand-daughter. Just out of Skagway, while we were eating King Crab and looking for Whales, I noticed the Sun setting. Without paying much attention, I took a quick picture. I didn't know what I had until I blew it up.
With all the forest fires in the area, the smokey skies makes for some interesting sunsets.
First image is through a blue filter to give a blue tint, second image is the actual color of the moon after it made it up over the treetops. Third image is my son walking out on the dock, holding his cell phone, under the full moon. These were taken at William M. Tugman State Park near Lakeside.
