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 […]

Politics of Hate

On Sunday morning, November 2nd, two days before the election, I sat on the “grassy knoll” in Dallas Texas. Although enjoying the warm sunshine, I felt sadness for the history that lingers there still. I had just completed the tour of the “Sixth Floor Museum”, the memorial for and site of the JFK assassination that took place on a similar […]

Weird Book of the Week

Weird Book of the Week

The night is cool and dark.  A wind was lost that once held promise; a lonesome breeze that found its way – a gift from thundering skies far south – through currents pulsing warmth into the icing shadows fading north.  The land is still.  Its breath gone quiet.  And for a moment, nothing stirs. And yet, just then, a scaled […]
