Bering Sea Sunset

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Bering Sea Sunset #1.

I just finished my last work shift here in Nome, Alaska and will soon be headed home to Cape Town, South Africa. I’ll just be in Nome for a couple more days to pack and wrap up a few loose ends. By Friday, I’ll be back home!

The weather in Nome has mostly been cold and rainy over these past 2 months, but yesterday was a warm (for Nome, so in the 50s), sunny day that was ended with a spectacular sunset over a very calm Bering Sea. I thought I’d share some pictures here of last night’s sunset, which provided a wonderful backdrop for the end of an enjoyable, if tiring, 2 months of work on the Bering Sea.

Bering Sea Sunset #3. That's Sledge Island.
