p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · How to Catch a Salmon


Seeing all of the brown bear pictures taken around Katmai this summer, got me wanting to get over there while we were traveling up here in Alaska. When we were recently in Homer, we managed to book a day trip for bear viewingi. Because of the timing of the salmon runs, we ended up going to Moraine Creek where there were many bears feeding on sockeye salmon. Below is a selection from one of my favorite sequences from that trip. From to time the bear started his charge till he was completely underwater was less than 3 seconds. For some reason the exifs seem to gotten stripped. Taken with a Canon 7D and 100-400mm.























































Enjoy,
Art

My gosh, that is a wonderful series. Reminded me of the summer of 1969 when working on Kodiak across from Dead Man's Bay. Well captured. It took approximately 90 seconds (if not hounded by fox/eagles/gulls) for the fish to be eaten and back into the stream for #2.

Super sequence!! Just goes to show how "stupid" fish can be when they are spawning. All that commotion and they just hang around to be eaten. I really enjoyed this set.

Wow Art !!! What a marvelous action series. Love no 7 with the shadows of the pinkish red salmon and the position of the bear, just wonderful.

Thanks to everyone for their comments. That was a most rewarding day! We just got back to Internet connectivity after spending three days out along the Denali Highway (100+ miles of dirt/gravel road).
