Description

The super typhoon Nuri moved into the Bering Sea, and brought freezing temperatures and high winds to Seattle. The high winds pushed all of the pollution out of the area, and the skies were absolutely clear. I decided to drive up to Tipsoo Lake before the pass closed for the winter. My goal was to capture the gorgeous late day light, and then the stars as they revealed themselves. Everyone in WA knows that it is a rare sight for us to see the sky at this time of year. On this evening while waiting for the sky to darken, I decided it was a good idea to get in some jumping jacks and calisthenics. It was a balmy 7 degrees with a windchill I'm sure dipped into the negatives. A few cars passed by pretty quickly, but this car made a slow pass which resulted in this gorgeous light trail. I'm of the opinion that it was a park ranger checking out the car on the side of the road and wondering who was crazy enough to be on the mountain in the dark in those temps! It was a glorious evening, and I am most thankful for my hand warmers which are the only things that made this image possible!
