Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird


I’ve posted a few photos from our 2013 trip to Alaska but haven’t used my first picture taken at dawn at Silver Salmon Creek.  I think this fits the theme  “Early Bird” perfectly.  The sun was just coming up across the inlet with the sky and mountains on the other side showing their colors.  The Bear that was out on the tidal flats was still just a silhouette but I love the mood of this photo.  Every time I look at this one, it brings me back to that early, but perfect, morning.

    • Thanks Lisa,
      We had actually seen this bear the previous day and knew her to be very calm. We were quite a ways away when I took this first photo but we got very close with her a little later in the morning – with her cubs nearby.
