Redoubt Bay Sunrise


Redoubt Bay Sunrise, Alaska

Redoubt Bay’s sunrise colors, Alaska.

Redoubt Bay is absolutely beautiful in the early morning hours. We got up for a sunrise fishing run, but when I saw this sky, I grabbed my camera gears and recorded a few shots before the colors disappeared. We caught about 30 lbs of salmon this morning, but this shot was my best catch of the day.

I spent two days here mainly to photograph coastal bears. I was able to get to within 30 feet of black and brown bears feasting on salmon flopping around on a creek bed. The bears here have it easy: they simply walk to the creek bed, look around for a few minutes, then pick out a salmon. Although the action shots here are not as dramatic as those often seen at Brooks Falls, this place is highly recommended for an overnight stay – one of my most memorable Alaska experiences.
