Gone to See Antarctica 2014/5: Day 11 – Hurtigruten MS Fram near Strømness, South Georgia
There are not many hours of darkness this far south at this time of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. You need to stay up late to see the colors at sunset and dusk, and very early to see the colors at dawn and sunrise. I was fortunate to catch this cloud formation at 03:51 AM. No one else was out on the deck other than the ship’s late night watch.
Gone to See Antarctica 2014/5: Day 9 – At Sea on the Hurtigruten MS Fram in the South Atlantic Ocean
Dawn colors from the deck of the Hurtigruten MS Fram between the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) and South Georgia Island. Views like this are why I get up early to view the sky at dawn while at sea. This is a composite of 16 image taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera.
I got permission to get onto the roof of the Sirna facility in Boulder to take pictures. I had been planning to do a panorama for some time, and saw some colorful clouds developing. I got up to the roof in time and got the picture. I also noticed an interesting sign (someone working there apparently thought they were “God”). By the time that I got the images for the Boulder Flatirons panorama the colors were gone, and the light had gone flat.
This morning the colorful clouds lit up earlier than yesterday. The display only lasts a few minutes, and is then gone. I did three different panorama images while moving around in the backyard to get slightly different compositions. You can see the colors and intensity changing in the three images all taken within four minutes.
