Tree

The Latest from Niebrugge Images Photo Blog Snow covered tree along Resurrection Bay, Seward, Alaska. Sticking with the tree theme – here is another image from Sunday.

Mountain Alpenglow

Mountain Alpenglow

The Latest from The Niebrugge Images Photo Blog Mountain alpenglow, Seward, Alaska. Here is another new image captured right from our front porch late last week - it feels like cheating! I love how only this one peak from the entire range emerged from the clouds – and if that wasn’t enough, it then became briefly illuminated with wonderful alpenglow.  We get […]

Here is a photo of us painting the 2008 mural.

As Ryan Writes: On Hunting Moose

        With such monumental change hinged in solid rock, held fast to the fading sun, this does not seem the time for idle pleasures. Snow is coming. Green life dying. All of us are facing a world somehow distant to the senses, yet clear as ancient ice when its travel courses brimming pools of open water – reservoirs of memory […]

A Sense of Place: A Seward Column

In a way, my first discovered love lay stretched within that moment of time I found in music.  Wound tight in tune through chances offered rhythmic and welcome.  I did not question love then, nor understand it as there was no need to.  It was merely a presence, as my parent’s voices tumbling soft into my ears in sleep, that […]

Weird Book of the Week

Rats.  The word alone is enough to cause fear, paranoia, suspicion and pain.  An expression of frustration.  Sneaky devils in the dark.  Vermin hordes that know no bounds.  They breed freely, without discretion, in nearly every corner of the globe.  Multiplying.  Conquering.  With dreams of world domination they cross oceans in secret, soaring through the skies in cargo holds, attacking […]

In the words of that gentle mountain minstrel, Skunkrat Steve: “If it’s good enough for a hobo, it’s good enough for you. So open up that can of beans, and pass that mountain dew.” Boy, now that just melts the 1/6 of my heart that’s pure hillbilly.

Throughout the past few weeks, I’ve received scattered reports about town of newly forged, “Maximized Men” who seem, by having reached their divinely ordained potential, to have gotten a bit big for their britches. In the hope of countering such a chest-baring surge of salt ‘n swagger, I spent many a long night combing the Library basement, searching for the […]
