I went to Lake Clark, Alaska to take this picture of grizzly bear. I came upon this magnificent creature on a late summer afternoon. My guide and I were crossing the inlet when we spotted this large male 200-300 yards away. My guide advised me to slowly walk backward.
I had never seen such an enormous bear like this one before. He weighed at least 800-900 pounds, but his proximity made him appear even larger. The bear was aware of our presence but seemed unperturbed, so I took the opportunity to photograph him in his natural habitat. I tend to shoot low; I set my tripod as low as possible and also dropped to one knee. He looked massive in my 600 mm Canon lens. I was surprised when he crept closer. Nothing can prepare you for seeing an animal that is four times your size, especially at close range like this bear wall art. He walked so gracefully I could not take my eyes off of him, even as the guide asked me to move back.
He paused at about 15 feet away-his eyes were focused squarely on me as I tried to take this brown bear image. But his disposition was even-tempered, almost serene. My camera stopped focusing at about seven feet- right before I got this shot. Something caught his eye, and he looked to my left. As he continued past us, I felt his size, energy, and also his sheer power. I was also somewhat amused to realize my guide had wisely decided to move back 50 feet.
That evening, in the relative comfort of my motel room, I reviewed the photos I had taken. I had expected the landscape images to be the keepers, but this bear wall art took the blue ribbon.
