The Real Estate Market in Jan/Feb 2021 The next 2 months is going to be crazy around the United States of American in most major cities when it comes to Real Estate.There will be many home owners that will be in a hurry to sell their homes and many people getting close to retirement wanting to buy homes. So both sides of the wheel will be interested.There will be hundreds of thousands of home owners wanting to flee the major cities in search of homes in rural areas with acreage in smaller cities and towns.Then there are going to be home owners that will want to lay back, stay in their homes to see how the economy is going to play out.So there are many angles of how the Real Estate Market is going to play out, so be on your toes and get ready to make some money.

Here is a great shot of a small airplane flying over the mountains in Alaska.I have been thinking after I retire in the next 3 - 4 years I might get a pilots license and buy a small airplane like this. My wife flew in a small plane like this from Anchorage to Homer several months ago. The person that flew the plane said a plane is cheaper then a car in Alaska.I bought a new car in Alaska 2 weeks ago and now I just need to get the pilots license and purchase a plane.

 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 a photo. If you are doing anything and see a interesting cloud in the sky, take a photo.And when you get time text your photo to your email address, then go to your email and download this cloud photo to your computer and post your interesting...

 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 better example of just how big the rock is on the right side of the photo.

  As we were driving along the Turn Again Arm south of Anchorage Alaska I looked to the right and saw very little wind. I knew that I could capture a great reflection of the snow cap mountains. All I can say about this photo is total beauty of God's hand at work, and what a work of art it is ...

A Slice of Heaven by Robert Swetz On our drive back from Homer to Anchorage my wife was sleeping because she had to work this morning, I captured a Slice of Heaven. There was quite a bit of traffic headed into Anchorage driving around Turn Again Arm but I had to turn around to take in the beauty and share this moment with you. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and I will continue to share as much of the beauty of Alaska as I can with you ;o)
 I was a teenager when I learned my purpose in Life - What's Yours? I was very lucky to have been shown my purpose in life at a very young age and have carried it with me still today. One of my purposes in life is to show people the beauty of the world through my camera lens.When I was a teenager my parents gave me a camera for my 15th birthday and everywhere I traveled I would take photographs of places I have been. Everyone doesn't have the chance to travel and capture the beauty of the world around us, so I share my experiences with them.Sure I have several other purposes in life but this seems to be my main one because I continuing to take photos and express them through the world wide web. MARK TWAIN once wrote ... The two most important days in your life are the day you were born ...

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 minute...

Robert "Vegas Bob" Swetz arrived in beautiful Alaska several days ago, and wow how nice it is to be back.I will be spending over one week in Anchorage, Soldotna, Homer, Palmer, Wasilla and other wonderfully beautiful places. I have been taking many new photographs and this is just one of them. It is very difficult for me to load large numbers of photos on the AR network so if you follow me at FaceBook you will see more.I did not bring a laptop computer so this is it folks until I get back to the Lower 48, then I will be loading many more. The main reason for my visit to Alaska is to spend some time at my new summer home in Homer, hike and take photos of the Last Frontier ... ;o)
Robert Swetz has the opportunity to visit Alaska the first week of June I have been given the opportunity to visit Alaska the first week of June 2018 because at this time I am in between construction jobs in NorCal and or Las Vegas Nevada.I looked at airfare and there is a great price of $404 dollars round trip from June 7th to ?For the next couple days I am going to ponder and really think about whether I should go or not.

On Christmas Day, we plan to go to Anchorage for business and a 2 week winter experience. The  is Dec 26 through Jan 7th.  According to Active Rain membership data, there are around 750 Active Rainers in Alaska.  Surely, there are enough for a meet-up!Did you have a great Thanksgiving? Vanessa and visiting mom in law, were up in the early AM and preparing turkey and food!  It was a fun day but a long one.  Vanessa’s pumpkin crunch was a winner.Is there a possibility for a Hawaii and Anchorage meet-up somewhere?  If someone locally could arrange getting us together, that would be grand! Is anyone up to the challenge?  It doesn’t have to be fancy, even your favorite fast food establishment would work, or the food court at a nearby mall. How about it?  Maybe this is your chance to invite a...
