As I said last week there was plenty at Katmai to photograph that I failed to do. Chuck asked about landscape, unfortunately to top photo is all I got. It was taken from the shore line by the planes. When I was taking the photo of Linda and Shane still shooting away, this is what they were photographing and filming.
The bottom photo is of one of the many salmon trying to go up stream and over Brooks Falls. I was so busy shooting the bears that I only got a few pictures of the salmon. You have to ask yourself why do they do it. Many are caught by the bears and eaten before getting to the spawning grounds, many more die trying to there and those that make it die after spawning and float back down the river to be eaten by the bear. Doesn't make much sense to me but after watching the many stupid things humans do nothing would surprise me.
As I said there was many things I didn't photograph, the cabins, gated bridge, landscape, trail and observation decks. I do believe Linda got allot of it on film including the bears and how they catch the fish and eat them. She is going to show me how to edit that footage and make short videos that can be added here. Hopefully we can have that done for next week. I am ready to go back, who is with me?
