Alaska travelogue, Preface: Snapshots from heaven
Submitted by christine on 2007-04-20 10:26:25 (via www.anands.net)
“How do I put it in words? The hundreds of waterfalls one sees driving through to Seward? The countless streams and rivers and lakes one sees when traveling to Denali? The lush green meadows? The snow capped mountains? The magnificent glaciers?” It’s indeed difficult to find the right words for this beauty, but the pictures are the best evidence.

I can't believe it, but is really Alaska that beautiful? YOu know when I hear the word Alaska I always imagine snow and ice and fish ;O) of course. But this is really incredible. I'm curiuos, is the part of Rusia at the same latitude as Alaska as beautiful and rich in vegetation?

Hi

I hear that the interior unexplored portions of Alaska are much much better. This is the beaten track, the areas which are well paved etc. I didn't even venture out of the main roads, actually.

I wonder how it would be for the true hiker. Total bliss.

Not sure about Russia though :).

Hey anonymous, are you the author of the article? if yes, you made just wonderful pictures. It's indeed breathtaking!
As about Russia, I've heard it's a beautiful landscape there too, with a lot of volcanoes and geisers.
There's something surreal in this untouched, wild beauty, isn't it?

Thanks for the kind words Pablo.

Yes, I am the author.

Hey anand,
I have visited your website and was impressed by your pictures. They are unbelievably beautiful. I especially liked the pics of the Grand Canion. Amazing!
Have you taken pictures somewhere except the territory of the US?

hey anand,
thanks for the pictures, they are indeed very beautiful. You know, the pictures of the Indian temple and your blog completely changed my opinion about India. To be sincere, I didn't like it so much. I thought of it as of a very dirthy and endless poor country. But I believe it is all about what you want to see when you are visiting a new country, isn't it?
Btw, why don't you post your blog here? It's indeed one of my favorite sites and one of my greatest hobbies to make comments here, along with my friends.
Do you still live in India, or you definitelly moved to the US?

I live in Silicon Valley right now, for the past 8 years, but I wouldn't know where I would be in 2 years time :).

Yes - it depends on what you want to see. You could see just the bad side or see the good part. I had an acquaintance who visited San Francisco for the first time and his one sentence conclusion was "Too many homeless people". If you see SF and all you saw was homeless people, tough luck :).

I will try to check this site, don't have much time to visit various sites :)

hello anand,
When looking through your website I noticed that you are fond of cameras. Are you a photographer or, if not, is this hobby of yours somehow related to your job?
Have you visited Europe? (I'm asking because I live in Europe:))

I have two young kids :). Waiting for them to grow up before i visit Europe.

I am an advanced amateur photographer who spends all his free $ and money on camera gear [and computers] :(

Hi Anand,

Thanks for the site with Utah pics. It's really breathtaking... Did you take those pics? Did you use a sertain regime of the camera? Because they are so bright and colorful- it's almost unbelievable. Unless you are a professional photografer and know how to use a photoeditor.

I am an amateur photographer who spends a lot of nights with the computer. I am not a master of post processing, but know the basics well.

Yes, without tweaking, Utah photos don't look as good.

Thanks :)

anand,
I can undestand your passion for cameras and computers if you live in the Sillicon Valley:).
When did you discover your passion? maybe it is not so late for me as well to start shoting more professionally:). I notices you give pretious advices on your website on how to choose a camera...

Photography as an interest started in 2000. Once bitten by the bug, things have been going smoothly ever since.

Hi Anand, well weather you know or not the post processing you still did a great job with those... I want to send them to my friends and sort of challenge them to traveling more. The world is worth seeing definitely... God also did a great job with it :)
