Late this afternoon it emerged from behind a descending ridgeline to warm my home again. It won't be long now and we will have sun from early morning until almost midnight.
|Shining on the house,|
|And in the house.|
Just as this welcome miracle was again disappearing behind the mountain, I pulled out of my driveway and headed for Seward. Iron Lady was playing at the Liberty Theater, and I wanted to see Meryl Streep in the role of Margaret Thatcher, the role that won her an Oscar this year.
|The brightest star is Venus. Jupiter is below and to the right, just above the mountain.|
|From the top: Venus, Jupiter, crescent moon, Mt. Marathon and its neighbors, and the City of Seward. Resurrection Bay is the darkness in the foreground.|
In order to get that photo, I had to climb part way up a seven foot high snowbank and stab my tripod into the snow. This is one of the photos I took of the moon as I was unintentionally sliding down that snowbank.
Okay, one more photo and them I'm off to bed.
|Venus missed out in this shot because I was trying to get a decent photo of that amazing crescent moon. Boy, I sure wish I'd had my good camera with me instead of only the point and shoot.|
