5 o’clock Sunset

Another jaw-droppingly beautiful sunset.

Green Seaglass and white stones

Guess what this is?

Fire ice

Beach ice in the golden light of sunset


These poor sea creatures got beat up badly in the waves. I found pieces of jellyfish all over the beach. #starfish #lastdance #sobeautifulIMG_8033.JPG

Tossed up and torn apart jellyfish. It’s been some rough seas lately…life’s a beach, then you die.IMG_8038-0.JPG

  1. Hi! I just wanted to say thank you for making posts like these! I’m is college student in Minnesota, and I’m really interested in rural medicine up in Alaska, almost exactly what you are doing! Going through your blog is really making me motivated and solidifying my choice in career, and posts like this one brighten my day! Keep on posting!

    Thank you!!

    • Oh awesome! One of our night shift ER docs worked up near Duluth, and I went to the U if M (Twin Cities) for undergrad. πŸ™‚ That’s exciting–rural Alaska is a wonderful place to live and work and to keep on learning. Where are you at in your education journey? You should come visit sometime. It’s really, really beautiful! πŸ™‚

      • I’m actually a freshman at University of Minnesota Duluth majoring in Biochem and Environmental/Outdoor Education! I have visited the Kenai peninsula area five times! I absolutely love Alaska!

        • Ahhh, so great! I studied Biochem too, with a minor in Spanish. πŸ™‚ The Kenai peninsula is soooo beautiful! What brought you to AK?

          • My older brother and his wife live up by Soldotna! I go up to Alaska to visit, backpack/adventure, and help their commercial fishing site! Also, is there a way I could contact you for advice? I have a couple questions about life as a doctor and the process of becoming a rural family doctor! Thank you!

  2. Hi Shana
    Now I’m trying again. Earlier, it was assumed my post, a short time later he was disappeared from the blog.

    The pictures are wonderful, simply wonderful. And orange golden light of sunset. Very beautiful. Thank you. Where this old house is in Nome?

    I assume that photographing one of your hobbies. What are you still doing otherwise in your spare time? How many hours do you work per day actually? And how many days per week do you work?

    I work in a bank. My friend also. We work 5 days a week. Once or twice a month I have to work on Saturday.

    Now I look forward to read news from Nome soon again. I read almost every day some of Alaska, newsminer.com for example. Or other information and stories from Alaska … and of course your blog πŸ™‚ this is simply fascinating. Maybe you also interested in receiving news from Switzerland …. πŸ™‚

    Have a nice weekend, see you soon.
    Best regards
    Patrick Bittel
