Evening Bike: Plane, Rail and Road.

Fairbanks is fortunate to receive the late-night light that blankets high-latitude lands. There rarely seems to be a shortage of it, and it makes many activities available all times of day. May 15 the sun had set just before midnight, while I was out riding my bike. The afterglow provided some fun photo effects.

My favorite was illuminated railroad tracks and a descending plane above. Shot at 11:57 p.m.

A few things attracted me to the next shot, the soft sliver of a moon contrasted the flattened and fragmented patterns of the car carrier and building.

Complementary Hummers

I would like to thank everyone who’s continued visiting my blog in recent weeks despite my lack of posts. Through shooting many different subjects I have been behind on my editing and posting. Hopefully I will have many new posts in the coming weeks.

For now, to get back into the swing a things, a pair of complementary-color Hummers.

I admit, the image is somewhat flat. But after watching the red Hummer pull parallel to the green one I couldn’t resist quickly parking to run and snap a few photos.

Complementary colors are opposite from each other on the color wheel, in this case red and green. They are often considered to create pleasing effects.

It’s too bad the colors are about the only complementary aspect of these cars.
