Incredible Mountains and Colors of Alaska by Robert Swetz

 

Every time I visit Alaska I take hundreds of photographs because I have been into photography most of my life.

I have been to this area where this photo was taken around 50 times and for some reason every time I visit areas in Alaska the scene seems to change from the different seasons, clouds, position of the sun and more.

Now the first time you view this photo you might think it was photo shopped to bring out the vibrant colors and I may have tweeted it just a little.

But for anyone that has been to Alaska they will tell you the trees, grass and vegetation is very great and that's because it snows so much during the winter and rains so much in spring, summer, fall.

What I like so much about this photo is that I spent over 45 minutes getting up to the peak of the huge rock formation to take this photo, if fact there was only one young couple that actually attempted it just after me out of many people. There is very sticky sand and mud that a person foot can get stuck in and have to call for help and or 911.

People have been know to drown because bay the time some help comes the tide will rise and drown them.

This photo really shows the many different colors of Alaska between the rocks, looking up the green mountain side and across the bay to the snow cap mountains ;o)

Hello Debra and I know what your saying, I have heard stories and read many (Warning Signs) about this happening. There wasn't very much that I crosses, maybe 6 feet of it and when I did I kind of ran across it quickly like a a ninja walking across hot cools 

At one time though one of my shoes was stuck like a suction cup and wouldn't let go of my shoe and I panicked a little bit

Hello Debra,

Thanks so much for stopping by and this is the first time I have ever dared to walk across this mud flat and I think it will be the last, it is very dangerous.

Hello Debbie and I have to agree! I have traveled all over the USA, California, Wyoming, Tennessee, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, etc and have yet to see a place as beautiful as Alaska. Although I have heard that British Columbia in Canada comes very close to Alaska.

It is a very beautiful photo Robert.  It sounds like it was definitely worth the risk in taking it and I am so thankful you shared it with us.  I love to see beauty like this and have not yet been to Alaska, but definitely need to go someday.  Have a great day!

Thanks for sharing VB!  You always capture the very best with the passion behind the snap shot.  In this instance you probably would save your camera equipment before yourself....danger zone.... please consider not putting yourself in harm's way again.  We will miss you and your passionate photo opps
