Bears don’t always show up under perfect lighting conditions. This grizzly sow was out foraging for clams just as the sun was rising…behind her! Since she was walking right on the edge of the water, there was no way to circle around to the other side of her to get the pretty golden morning light softly illuminating her orange-brown fur.
One solution was to turn her into a silhouette. Her pronounced shoulder hump tells you this bear’s a grizzly. And the simplicity of the image gives it a serene quality.
