“Pristine Delta”

©2015

The sweet-light of moonrise bathes the expansive glacial river delta and the great snowcapped peaks of the northwestern Chugach Mountains.  As temperatures plunge, ice-fog forms delicate wisps above every lead of open water, floating quietly down each river braid and generating a soft halo around the moon.  In between the land and the vast starfields, energetic auroral curtains pulsate at high speeds across the crisp clear night.  Accenting the magical moment, a huge fireball from the Taurid meteor shower burns brightly in the northeast, adding its brilliance to the pristine gathering of light.
