APRIL SHOWERS ~ It’s amazing what a 4-second camera exposure will reveal on a good night, and a good night it was! Thank you Nikon D850 for all 45.7 megapixels. April 10, 2018 at 1:44 am AKDT. Knik River Valley, Southcentral Alaska (N of Anchorage, S of Palmer). Did I really see it that bright? Truthfully, no, it was definitely darker to the naked eye. Full disclosure; a camera is like NVGs ~ Night Vision Goggles ~ and picks up the subtle nuances of night light better than the human eye. But take a deep breath…inhale….deeper….and hear the murmur of the creek, fresh spring air on your face, and your eyes wide with wonder. That’s how I felt anyway. The sky looked absolutely gorgeous reflecting in the water and had me oooooing & awwwwing. I hope you know the feeling.

Nice. Ive come to appreciate clouds in my shots and the moon, too. Shooting from Churchill mostly with the occasional low horizon shot from Maine. I tell folks coming to Churchill in the groups that they can get two vacations in one if they have a good camera - what your eye can see especially the awe inspiring movement, and the fabulous color your camera can capture for you.
