anchorage: 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)

anchorage: 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)

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 ...

I am missing my wife and Fall in Alaska ...
 
In Fall of 2015 Robert Vegas Bob Swetz had the privilege of being in Alaska driving around viewing the Fall colors and taking some photographs.

Turnagain Arm is located south of Anchorage and is located on the northwestern part of the Gulf of Alaska.
When driving south of Anchorage towards Girdwood, Seward, Hope, Homer, Soldotna and Kenai Alaska there are large mountain ranges and great views for taking photographs.

This wonderful cloud photo was taken early Saturday morning 8/27/2016 on our … (9 comments)

Beautiful Seward Alaska
 
Here is a colorful photo of a small section of the bay and marina in Seward Alaska.
We drove down from Homer yesterday and spent some time walking around the downtown area and also hiking around Exit Glacier.
Robert Vegas Bob Swetz has been coming back to visit Seward Alaska since his very first visit to Alaska back in 2001.
Seward is a very interesting place and most of the large cruise ships that visit Alaska from Seattle and many foreign countries port in Seward and tourists will then take charter buses to Anchorage, Denali National Park, Fairbanks and more.
