Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 9: Crossing the Pacific Ocean From Hawaii to Japan.
Images from sunrise and sunset from the deck of the MV World Odyssey. One thing that I noted on this voyage was the very red color of the sun at sunrise and sunset as we crossed the Pacific ocean. I wasn’t expecting smog in the middle of the ocean. The closer we got to Asia, it became even more pronounced. I normally do not try to take pictures of the sun without a very dark filter, especially through a telephoto lens. However, on this voyage the atmosphere near the horizon became that filter.

It was really cold out last night with a clear sky. When I woke up at 05:30 both Venus and Jupiter were bright lights in the sky. A bit later, just before sunrise a few of the clouds near the horizon lit up.

Although it was cold this morning when I woke up, I noticed some colorful clouds developing just before sunrise. I went out with a Fuji X-T2 camera and a 8-16 mm f/2.8 wide-angle lens. I took a number of shots to create this dawn panorama.
When I woke up, there were more clouds than yesterday. I set the two cameras up again, and this time rewarded with some colors and a pillar of light at sunrise. The solar pillar or column is sunlight being reflected from thin ice crystal plates. Time-lapse videos and some panorama images.
