The Crossing, Revisited

(This post originally published in November 2011) As we drove through Hayden Valley (Yellowstone National Park) in the early morning, we were able to catch bison crossing the Yellowstone River:     Seeing the bison in early fall is quite different than in the peak of winter. When I was in Yellowstone this past February, […]

Stalling for Time: Shameless, Self-Promotion

Stalling for some time to get some of my recent Baja images edited and sized for blog posts, I’m going to share another recent project that I’ve been working on (both on the Baja trip and while in bed, after returning home). Towards the end of 2012, I was approached by Glacier National Park (Montana) […]

This first image was made in Gardiner, Montana, just outside Yellowstone National Park. During the evening twilight, we found a spot overlooking Gardiner and set up to shoot some […]

Fun Friday: “Alaskan Water Bed”

This image certainly changes the meaning of a “water bed”! This image was taken along Clint’s Creek (Hallo Bay Bear Camp, located within Katmai National Park, Alaska) as this bear took an apparently much-needed nap, after a successful fishing endeavor:   Hyperphagia is the term scientists use for describing the behavior that bears go through, […]

Snorkeling, Anyone?

During my Hallo Bay photo trip, I found several brown bears “snorkeling”, the term used to describe a bear with their head underwater, looking for fish swimming in the creek. This was not a new behavior for me to see; every time I’ve been to Hallo Bay in the fall salmon runs, there have always […]

Hallo Bay … the Bears

Today’s post starts some posts of Hallo Bay’s most famous inhabitants, the Alaska coastal brown bear (Ursus arctos). The Alaskan coastal brown bear is a grizzly bear. Some people argue that this is a different species from the more common grizzly bear found in the lower 48 states, while others argue that they differ only […]
