Here’s another update from the wild west of Alaska, where bears and volcanoes outnumber people by a long-shot. This year we have completed 8 Natural Habitat Kodiak-Katmai Grizzly Expeditions, and all where life-long highlights for our travelers. How can you beat being on eye level with some of the largest, most beautiful and human tolerant bears on earth? The salmon were 2 weeks late all over the state, but we still had great bear viewing before the fish came in. When they did arrive, all were thankful!
Photographers must be able to take advantage of situations when the bears walk between you and the sun. As long as you expose for the sky and not the bear, and let the bear become a silhouette, it can make for an amazing image.
I love ravens, especially when they interact with large predators. Read more about ravens from one of my earlier posts by CLICKING HERE.
Alaska is utterly amazing. I am so thankful to live in a time where I can explore and appreciate such an awesome frontier where the land and the animals are as they have always been. It has been yet another amazing summer. Love those bears! More to come soon….
