We are going to Alaska in June....



How early do I have to be up to see a sunrise? 4am? How late is a sunset? Ha ha, I'll have to take a nap and set my alarm to see the sunset, huh?


We left Vancouver on 6/06. I took some beautiful sunset shots leaving Skagway. Our ship newsletter for that day has the sunset listed at 10:12, and my digital pictures are time-stamped at about 10:30. According to the newsletter, sunrise would have been at 3:49 that day (6/10), so, needless to say, I don't have any sunrise pictures!

One comment on sunrise pictures -- most mornings when we woke up, about 7:30, it was quite foggy. On our way into Ketchikan, in particular, we hit a lot of fog the evening before, and could hear the fog horns going all night. Don't think you would have seen sunrise or sunset. We could see the fog bank from our balcony as we looked back down the passage.


Take a photo of the sunset and then tell friends and family that it's a sunrise. On the open sea they look the same, right? :^)
