These photos were taking on the Noatak river last night at around 11:55pm.

Ohhhhh...that is lovely. It looks almost as though the sky is on fire.

Great shot, Cathy.

Cathy--what a delight to discover your blog, and from half-way around the world. I found it as a link on the sidebar of an American blogger in Laos who had visited my blog, Tundra Medicine Dreams. I'm a little south of you in Bethel, and have been blogging about life among the Yupik Eskimo people is SW Alaska for the last two years.

I love your photography; you have a great eye. Now I'm motivated to research your camera a bit more. Back in the days before digital, I had a Nikon SLR that I loved. Currently I am shooting with a Canon Powershot, which is handy for its small size, but I'm longing for something larger and more versatile with lenses I can change. Two friends have the Canon Rebel, and love it.

I've never been to Kotz, though have friends who've lived there, and have met Ed Iten a few times when he's been in Bethel for the K300 (photo of him on my blog chatting with Rohn and Martin Buser and Jeff King at the K300 Musher's Banquet this past January). My almost-husband and I just returned from our first venture above the Arctic Circle last month, a trip to ANWR with Aliy Zirkle and her husband. Of course I blogged about it with photos!

Anyway, a long-winded "hello", which is all I wanted to say... Hope you'll stop by for a visit sometime.

What nice pics! I saw your comment today on the tundra medicine dreams blog and thought I would take a peek! I look foward to reading more of your blog! I love photography as well. I just got my first "REAL!"(to me) digital.
A canon eos XTI and I'm so happy with it. The kit lens sucks though!
Have a great rest of the weekend!

Funny how MY bloggy world is becoming linked...I have been reading The Tundra Pa for quite some time now, too, and don't even remember how I found it - but we (my husband) has relatives in Bethel, so I keep reading, knowing that her slice of life there is THEIR slice of life there. I've told you before, it's amazing to me how large Alaska is, and how small the world is! Love the nighttime photos - as usual.
