Some Amazing Alaskan Sunsets!!

Anchorage has had some spectacular sunsets lately!!!

So I thought I would share a few with you.  Our sun sets right
now around 4:00 in the afternoon.  When I see a hint
of clear sky I ready myself for some spectacular 
evening sunsets.

Sometimes I race to the inlet so I can take it all in.  It only lasts 
minutes, so it really is a mad dash.

The colors can be very intense and beautiful.
I especially love the pink sunsets, although I find them all

I stopped to take the photo below at a nearby clearing in the outskirts of town.
While I was parked, a man in the car next to me got out and played
taps on his bugle...what a wonderful way to end the day!!

The sunsets are amazing and the sunrises can be just as spectacular.  
The bottom photo was taken Christmas morning from my living room window.

I love standing in the glow of this lovely evening and morning light!

I can't wait for the next one!  Just when you think you have seen the best sunset
ever, another one comes and steals the show!!


  1. What wonderful sunsets and have captured them beautifully.
    Best wishes for the New Year in your winter wonderland.

  2. Spectacular, indeed! Thank you so much for rushing out with your camera. It's lovely to see such an expanse of horizon with all that late afternoon drama.

    Best wishes for a very Happy New Year!

  3. Wow, wow, wow!!!! That is amazing! Since we live in a valley we get no sunsets or rises at all unfortunately...
    Looking forward to more of your beautiful pictures next year! :-)

  4. Che foto spettacolari sei riuscita
    a fare, magari ci fossero anche qui!!
    Ti auguro un 2012 magico.
    Un abbraccio
