A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Two photos of the sub-Arctic

One reader, Ed Hausladen, equally impressed by the photo of "Sunset at the North Pole" but also disbelieving of its validity, forwards two photos of his own. I am in a state of agape -- wow!

"Here's a subarctic photo for you that's not retouched or manipulated. I took it in 1989 while in the Navy and stationed in Iceland. The subjects are the aurora borealis, a ruin, and the (overexposed) moon rising over a frozen lake. (We may see the aurora here in the lower 48 in a few years when the solar magnetic storm cycle peaks.)

The second photo is the same lake, same ruin. This time the lake is unfrozen and reflects the aurora.
