OF COURSE, THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT...


WILD ALASKA: SPAWNING SOCKEYE SALMON IN KATMAI NAT'L MONUMENT ON THE ALEUTIAN PENINSULA...
 

 ALASKA:  I SNAPPED THESE SHOTS WHEN I WAS JUST A YOUNG BUCK IN MY TWENTIES. ALL THESE YEARS LATER MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF WILD SALMON STILL RETURN TO THE ALASKA STREAMS OF THEIR BIRTH TO SPAWN... AND DIE. THE NUTRIENT-RICH RIVERS THEN NURTURE THE SALMON "SMOLTS" OF THE NEXT GENERATION. 

IN THIS DAY AND AGE WHERE WE ASSUME NOTHING PROPER CAN HAPPEN WITHOUT HUMAN INTERVENTION TO "IMPROVE"  NATURE - INCLUDING FARMED SALMON - IT'S A BIT OF A MIRACLE TO THESE JADED EYES TO REALIZE THAT THE MOST DELECTACLE FISH ON THE PLANET DO PERFECTLY WELL - ALL BY THEMSELVES - IF WE HUMANS JUST STAY THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY!

AND THAT'S THE ALASKA SALMON SUCCESS STORY. THE SPRAWLING GULF OF ALASKA AND OTHER MARINE WATERS IN THE STATE ARE OFF-LIMITS TO OIL DRILLING AND EXCESSIVE COMMERCIAL MINING, ETC. RESULT: EACH MANAGED SPAWNING RIVER ALLOWS FOR THE NECESSARY ESCAPEMENT TO REPRODUCE THE NEXT GENERATION OF FISH - AND THEN SALMON FISHERMEN HARVEST MUCH OF THE SURPLUS.  

IS THERE A NATURAL AREA WHERE YOU LIVE THAT MIGHT BENEFIT FROM DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING? JUST ASKING...

ALWAYS KEEP YOUR CAMERA READY, INCLUDING NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO YOUR ISO SPEED SETTINGS. GREAT PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES OFTEN EXIST - FOR JUST A HEARTBEAT!
