PIC OF THE WEEK: 12/25/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Cook Inlet • Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, Alaska
Notes: One of the many things I loved about Alaska was that several times we were able to be very close to nature. This was unique in that our presence did not seem to disturb the animals at all. We were allowed to be in their proximity on a few occasions in a way that only rarely happens back home. In my experience this tolerance primarily happens for one of two reasons. In the metropolitan areas, the conditioning happens because they become use the the busyness of their environment. But in Alaska, I believe this allowance was provided by innocence. It was as if we were not just tolerated, but an accepted part of the landscape, much like a tree or another bird species. With the loss of fear and our lack of threat, I felt apart of the wilderness, no longer just a witness. When these intimate encounters happen, I try to just joy the moment, and then snap a quick portrait shot or two.
