A Few More Alaska Pictures: SkyWatch Friday

Here are a few more pictures from my trip to Alaska. The first two are of a sunset that we watched one night while having dinner. The other two shots were taken from the plane as we flew from Dallas to Seattle. The scenery that you fly over on that flight is incredible.

It's hard to decide which is more spectacular, the sky of the mountains. Well done!

I love these; the snow on the mountains makes them so beautiful to photograph--especially against such a sky as that first one! It sounds like a wonderful trip.
