Hallowed Bay by gwrhino Hallowed Bay by gwrhino
what? could it be? the rhino going all religious/metaphysical on us?

not at all, just a (bad) pun on the location, which is Hallo Bay Alaska. They land the bush plane on the beach, which is slanted a good 20 degrees. It goes like this.

me, to 25 year old freckled face babe of a bush pilot. "Where are we going to land?"

babe, I mean bush pilot says,.... "on the beach"

me..... "like come on, seriously"

bush pilot.... "first we buzz it to shoo off the bears and the wolves, and to make sure no logs have rolled up in the surf."

me, to avoid sounding even more like an idiot.... "roger that"

anywho, there was a grizz standing just over out of frame to the right. he walked about a hundred yards behind us while I shot this, or so they told me while it happened....

apparently, (this is what the other guy shooting with me said) while I was focusing through live view on this image, an eagle carrying the tattered remains of an American Flag, swooped down and fought with the grizz over the remains of a fish on the beach.

oops, guess I missed that one....can't be everywhere...

Lovely colors. I have wanted to visit this place for a few years now because of the abundance of bears. Sounds like a great place for all types of photography it seems.

Very nice colors, not too overdone or saturated, just realistic enough. And also a nice shading for an evening effect. I love the lines at the bottom and the symmetry with the way the clouds are flowing too. It would have been nice if the foreground leading lines would have gone the other way to draw you into the rock and clouds that way though, but hey, it's nature, beggars can't be choosers. And I think you did a great job. Must be paradise with all of the wildlife and landscape to yourself. Can't wait to see more.
