Nome, Alaska: Helios Descends at Midnight

This is a second image of the fishing hut on Safety Sound as the midnight sun touches the horizon.

This HDR photo was taken just before midnight on Wednesday July 27, 2011. Nome is located in Northwestern Alaska and lies just below the Arctic Circle so the summer days are long and lingering and summer sunsets last for hours.

The image is an HDR composite of 3 bracketed shots. Safety Sound is a little-known, accessible part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge and hugs the coast of the Bering Sea.
