Midnight Flowers

It was so dark I could not see the mountain in the background. I could see very little at all...

 

The Nikon sees everything I do and lots more.

 

It was late in the night on Umnak Island in the aleutian chain of Alaska. The volcano Okmok was erupting on the island... I laid in the field and listened for it... I waited to feel the ground shake with the forces that were creating new earth only miles away.

 

I was only a few miles northeast of the village of Nikolski. What a magical place.
