If I was to expose this enough to show detail in the bear, I would have blown out the warm beautiful sunrise light.  So, I purposely underexposed this so that I would just have the silhouette and the wonderful light.

This was captured with a 600mm at f/4.5, 320 iso and 1/2500 of a second on a Canon 7D.

  2. That is a very sweet shot Ron! Silhouettes are a wonderful thing, and the wonderful morning light does amazing things for the mudflats.

    Thanks Calvin – yep, it sure makes a world of difference!

    Ron For this one I think I got up at 5:30 – about the same time we were getting up in Kenai Fjords – not too bad, at least compared to earlier in the summer.

  4. Most bear photos you see are close-ups, cute cubs, catching fish, etc. These last few sunrise pics are definitely something I’ve never seen before. Very cool!

    Thanks Scott! This is one of the second year cubs you were asking about – lot bigger then last year huh. I’ll share some more of them when I get a chance.
