“When the lake meets the ocean. 🌊The water you can see on top of these massive cliffs is Lake Sørvágsvatn but the water down at the bottom of these exact same cliffs is the ocean! How amazing is that?!”

Photography by @traunfoto “This photo was taken on an early fall day at Lake McDonald Glacier National Park in Canada. It was mid morning and the water was eerily still, which is unusual as it is known for its windy conditions. I used my Canon 5D mk3 and wide angle lens to get this shot, as well as a tripod which positioned my camera only inches off the water. To top it off, a giant cloud hovered over Stanton Peak and created a great reflection over the water.” #lake#reflection#sky#mountain#canada

@kernow_from_above “This is a tidal bank in the middle of the River Camel in Cornwall. At high tide the bank is completely covered by water. However, at low tide it reveals itself and huge tidal pools are formed. As you can see boats moor up over it, but when the tide is low, the boats are left stranded and have to wait until the tide comes in before they can set sail!”
Having once considered much of western and central North America home, Grizzly or Brown Bear populations have now mostly retreated to their last strongholds in Alaska, British Columbia, Yukon, and the Northwest Territories. Smaller populations have managed to hang on in Alberta, Nunavut, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming.
An iconic species to many, the Grizzly Bear is one of the most magnificent animals to witness up close. The amazing raw power, strength, and determination these bears have is an incredible experience you will always cherish.
Given their amazing strength, it’s incredibly important to respect bears and their habitat. NEVER feed bears. Don’t leave garbage outside your house or campsite. A fed bear is a dead bear.
When photographing or viewing bears in the wild, it’s very important to watch their behavior. Bears often communicate with subtle movements in their posture, ears, paws, mouth/face, or with vocalizations. Know before you go: if you can understand what a bear is telling you, you can help keep things safe and calm for both of you.
The best advice when bear viewing is to go with a qualified guide that will help watch for these signs and ensure a safe bear viewing experience for both you and the bear.
