Bear Looking Over by Judy Haran

October 2021 - Bear Looking Over

About the Image(s)

We were lucky enough to go to Alaska this past June with Muench Workshops, before there were many tourists in town. We stayed on a small boat (11 in total on the boat) for a week cruising the Inside Passage looking for wildlife. On the first morning we saw some young bears digging for mussels on the shoreline.

Nikon D500, 500 PF lens, handheld, f/5.6, 1/1000, ISO 900

I didn't do much to this photo except crop out some of the background, and do some color adjustment in Lightroom.

Judy, this is a great photograph!
The bear is tack sharp and full of detail.

My husband and I have been on two bear trips
in Alaska. We are currently looking into a third trip.
Love my bears!

Oh my that is a great clear shot of the bear. You can see the detail of his fur and I liked that you included his environment, it adds a great deal to the image. Nicely done!   Posted: 10/11/2021 13:59:53

A superb image. The bear stands out from its background, the entire bear is in sharp focus, your composition is great. Excellent!   Posted: 10/13/2021 11:26:03

Judy, Love the face of this young bear. Great detail of the bear due to a steady hand on a small boat. I totally love the horizonal lines of color and texture crowed by a touch of green. The bear standing at the transition of the dry rock and the dark barnacle covered rocks is awesome. Great job!   Posted: 10/15/2021 21:25:14
