It’s been too long since I’ve shared a Charles Glatzer’ image. He is the master of transporting future viewers right into the scene with the subject.
This is a Brown Bear with a Salmon. Both were caught in Alaska.
Deborah Sandidge is an artist with a specific and very captivating style. I can usually pick out her images from a group. She makes a lot of seascapes and this one is pure liquid gold.
I have shared a lot of (hundreds?) of wildlife images on these pages, that were up close, and in your face. Sometimes, more distant shots can be at least as artful as the close-ups. The great thing about photography is that even if you cannot always choose the location you shoot a wildlife picture from, you can still change lenses and create a variety of moods and make a variety of artistic statements.
I will leave you today with an old sunset that has brought a lot of success to me over the years.
God Bless, Wayne
