Sorry for the delay (again) in posting here. I’ve been busy the last 2 weeks, trying to photograph grizzly bears. I just returned, 24 hours ago, from a trip to Katmai National Park, where I focused on trying to get some grizzly bear photos that were different to what I’d shot in the past. Here’s the first of what hopefully won’t be too many that you get bored with them.
Yes, it’s true – I took some time out to detour away from Wrangell – St. Elias National Park, when I promised myself not to – but the change did me great! One of the things I really wanted to focus on this trip was to catch a nice blend of bears and fall colors – hence I travelled to Katmai National Park a little later than usual. While I missed more than my fair share of photos opportunities due to various different screwups I made along the way, I did manage to grab a few that worked out OK for me.
I intend next year, 2010, to run a “Grizzly Bears in Fall” photo tour, similar to my current Skolai Pass Phototour. Details aren’t finalized yet, but it should be a fun trip .. a small group, no more than 4 people plus myself, camping in Katmai National Park, wading the rivers and photographing the great brown bears and brilliant fall colors of the region – good times!
More brown bear photos to come.
