I am flying out from San Jose California Saturday afternoon headed to Alaska. I will be checking on our home around Homer Alaska and also viewing the devastation across the state.There are approx 100 forest fires across Alaska and it is very hard to get around by car because there are only so many major roads of travel. My wife had to turn around several times when she was driving from Homer to Anchorage. Now she has a website she goes to that lets her know if the road is open. She took this photo (above) on her drive to Anchorage from Homer 2 days ago.Here is another photo (below) of a smaller fire that broke out only 1 mile from our home. My wife almost had to evacuate because it was coming closer towards our home. The fire was contained after 3 days of airplanes and helicopters dropp...

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 ... I dreamed when I was very young of traveling and living by the west coast in Oregon & California ... came true! I dreamed of traveling to Asia when I was very young many times. and I have traveled to Myanmar/Burma, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan 4 different times in my life. I have always dreamed of owning lake front property because I grew up spending most of my life on lakes in the Midwest. And purchased 2-3 di...

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 Kenai River I parked the car and took a stroll through some trees by the bridge hoping to not be attacked by a bear.As I came to a open area I looked with total bliss at the beauty of the river through the trees. It seems like every corner a person turns while traveling in...

 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 the total beauty of Alaska ;o)
