I don't think you want to see my view. This IS Arizona!

If you think this panorama is BIG, you should see the picture from which it was reduced to fit in the size limit here. That picture is 17 megabytes in size(17068 x 3883).

Is there any way you can get rid of that huge black border around it? That makes it take up a lot more space than is necessary.

Maybe, but I would have to use a different editing program to do that
. It was easier than I thought and I was able to use the original program. Still a very big picture.

My mom just sent me this photo a few minutes ago from Fairbanks, Alaska where it's just after midnight.

That's right. The clock says 11:36 PM! I guess that's why they call it the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Arizona Hot, whereabouts are you at? I'm plop down in the center of Glendale; just went outside to call a friend without waking up the whole family and came back in sweating :P

I'm on the Members map. I think that would tell you more than anything I could say.

Yes, and in the winter it's the Land of the Noon Stars.

I'm glad that there is a internet provider which enables me to have a broadband connection here. Otherwise, I would have to use HughesNet like my brother Steven.

Ughhh, my mom works out in Lichfield Park (about 15 miles west of here, not far at all!) and both Qwest and Cox refuse to run lines from the north side of the road (newly populated over the last couple of years with housing) to the south side (ranch she works at) so she went from AOL (ughhhh :sick:) to HughesNet, against my IMMENSE amount of criticism of them, their crappy service, and insane pricing scheme (instead of my recommendation of a 3G dongle with a cell service provider). She complains all the time.

This is the result of my trial of Adobe Photoshop. It's a view of the road up to here(or very long driveway) and the valley below. It's not as big as the original 17 megabyte panaorama because I only have 1 gigabyte of RAM(300 megabytes free). Photoshop said I didn't have enough RAM for a Content-aware fill of the edges of the original panorama. That panorama looked much worse than I remembered it in Photoshop. This cut-down version of the original will have to do.

Steven complains about HughesNet also. He said he can send email only sporadically and is always getting disconnected.

Indeed. My family lived in Alaska when I was a baby (so I don't remember it) and I've heard stories from my siblings about them going to school in the dark and coming home from school in the dark. All the daylight hours passed by while they were in the classroom.

And while we're on the subject, my mom sent me even more photos taken well after 1 AM and it looked as bright outside as it is now (nearly 3 PM) where I am in Idaho. As I said, I'd heard about it before, but it still is kinda crazy (IMO) to see for yourself.

A rather depressing afternoon.  The Rupert Murdoch effect perhaps ?

There certainly should have been  :)  It was the strongest rainbow I've seen for ages, outer bow and everything.  The light intensity difference between "inside" and "outside" is more extreme than I remember seeing it, but I think that's an example of the brain's visual processing.
