Seward Rainbow

The Latest from Niebrugge Images Photo Blog Rainbow over Resurrection Bay, Seward, Alaska.

Ryan Rytes a Work of Fiction

Ryan Rytes a Work of Fiction

The following story isn’t supposed to mean anything really, but was inspired by a quote read from a passing book.  This was the spark to a smoldering fire; released, risen, extinguished: “When we cling to pain, we end up punishing only ourselves.” When Marcus Hyle was seventeen, he killed his neighbor’s dog.  It was an accident.  It was useless to […]

Colorful sunset skies like this are fairly rare in Seward.  Thanks to the beautiful surrounding mountains, it takes just the right combination of clouds, and they need to be relatively high to light up like this.  Usually they are too low and the sun isn’t able […]
