Dare to Dream Over the Rainbow by Robert Swetz
All of us dream from when were born till the day we die, so what do we do with these dreams? Do we store them in our brains and hope they may come true some day? Or do we just forget about them because they are only a dream and not real at that moment in time?
Well I am living proof that dreams do come true and here are just a few ...

There is no place like Alaska ...
My first visit Alaska was in 2001 followed by 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018. After my first visit in 2001 I talked about my experience for months, I was taken away by it's beauty.
When I was given another chance to visit in 2015 I couldn't pass up the opportunity.
I try to visit Alaska around 3 time per year because I own property up there and I just can't get enough of Alaska. As a photographer of 40 years Alaska is a photographers dream. As my wife and I drove by Coopers Landing by the … (14 comments)

Here are some words of advice about negativity from Eckhart Tolle that makes sense to me and maybe you ...
And a photo I took in Alaska during fall for the moment of now ;o)

alaska: CLOUDS AT ACTIVERAIN GROUP (clouds attached) - 08/23/18 06:24 PM

The interesting thing about clouds is they are everywhere all over the world. Some are fluffy white, some are dark and scary, many come in different colors depending on a sunset or sunrise and some clouds actually can form into different figures.
So any way a person sees clouds they are very interesting and the next time you walk out the door of your home, office or any building and you come across a interesting cloud, take a photo with your smart phone.
If your driving in your car and see a interesting cloud, pull your car over if you can and take … (18 comments)

alaska: Great Quote From Mark Twain With Great Photo Attached - 08/18/18 10:27 AM

Here is a great quote by Mark Twain that I really like because I can relate to it.
I knew very early in life what my purpose in life is and that is to show the beauty of the world through the lens of my cameras.
I can show viewers the beauty of places they have never seen and places they have may have seen and what to visit again.
Here is a great shot I captured on our drive from Anchorage to Homer and if you look real close you can see people standing by the shore of the Kenai Bay. This gives you a … (34 comments)

alaska: The Snow is getting ready to Fly in Alaska - 08/10/18 10:26 PM

As many people know Alaska is known for having heavy snow fall through the spring, fall and winter months.
For Alaska snow is around the corner ...
By September Alaska can get hit with snow storms which creates snow cap mountains like this one I took around November of 2016.
And then again Alaska can have Indian summer days in fall even into some winter months.
As you can see in the photo above the tree line has no leave cover which crates a brown color from the branches, tree trunk and bark of the of the trees.
And any way you look at this photo it still displays … (21 comments)

alaska: Beautiful Moose River in Sterling Alaska - 08/05/18 10:04 AM

Several weeks ago on our drive to Homer Alaska we passed over the bridge that crosses Moose River in Sterling Alaska. Sterling is approx 7 miles north of Soldotna.
I took another photo of Moose River 2 years ago when it was frozen and no leafs on the trees so it was quite bland.
We have crossed this bridge many times on our way from Anchorage to Homer but always pass it so quickly because the speed limit in 50 miles per hour.
Well on our way back to Anchorage at about 5:00am my wife was sleeping because she needed to work that day. … (16 comments)

alaska: Is this really Planet Earth? - 07/22/18 10:38 AM

Is this really Planet Earth?
I have been to some very strange looking places in my life but this area took me by surprise.
Several years ago one of my nephews named Donny that lives in Alaska brought us up to Hatcher Pass located approx 20 miles north of Wasilla. There is a old historical abandoned mine at Hatcher Pass along with Red Cabins for snow skiing and winter activities.
When we first arrived at Hatcher Pass I was snapping photos of the Red Cabins and mountains. Then my Donny said let's go to another place you really have to see ...
So we drove up … (15 comments)
