Day 201: Something Beautiful—Night Sun on the Marsh

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

10:30pm—One hour and 45 minutes ago I saw this. Lisa, my niece by luck, and enchanted daughter, Greta, took me to Potter Marsh on Cook Inlet. I am not a professional photographer, but how could you take a poor picture of something this stunning? Within an hour, we saw salmon jump, an eagle fly, an otter play, and the night sun cast the most exquisite and dramatically lit landscape I have seen anywhere. Magical.
