Bear; up close & personal

After much deliberation I have decided that if I ever come this close to a bear I think it will most likely be the last thing I ever see.

Photography 101 Dont forget the zoom lens

I’ve had some friends in town and I’ve been out and about a fair bit showing them the sights and enjoying the good spell of weather. I did the same monster hike that I did last summer with them, it was slightly easier this time as it was a cooler day, although it was clear at the top so the views were amazing again.

I also took them on a far easier hike to a stunning lake, however the previous day (on the monster hike) I had taken all my camera gear and decided I didn’t need the extra weight of a zoom lens.


While still on the loggers road driving to the trail head we spotted a mama bear and her 2 cubs, no amount of post picture cropping can bring the photos up to the level they would have been if I had just sensible enough to take the zoom.
