I thought it might be nice to share some Solstice 2011 pictures. I realize it is a bit early (Solstice is not for a few days) but it is pretty close and it was a spectacular night. The dog and I drove up to Murphy Dome near Fairbanks for some midnight photography, got eaten by the mosquitoes that were out in force, and had the treat of a beautiful cow moose with rust colored twins in the yard of the cabin when we got back home. Hope everyone had a great weekend, please share any pics you have!
