I have been dreaming for at least 10 years of going to Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park in Alaska to see and shoot the Brown Bears during the annual salmon run. The experience when I finally made it there was unbelievable. Being able to watch these beautiful animals who were literally yards away was beyond amazing. At the height of my viewing experience, I watched at least 25 bears at the falls and down stream. To make this an absolutely over the top experience was achieving this shot of a salmon on its way into this Mama Bear's mouth. I saw a similar shot years ago and have dreamt of getting a similar shot ever since. Although I thought my trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I'm already looking at returning again some day. :)
