221-Sunrise – Alaska

Being this far north, the sun during the winter season rises and sets very low in the south. Because of this, some amazing sunrises and sutsets occur. The low angle of the sun plays with the colors of the sky. And, if you catch it right, can make for a wonderful start or end of the day. Unfortunately, these sunrises are occurring at around 10:00 AM which makes is a little disconcerting and this sunset was at about 3:00 PM.
