You could look on it as artistic 'noise' Cheryl Wink

Well worth taking - as if a little rain would stop you!!!

That is beautiful, the rain gives it an effect that takes it a cut above the average. I think I'd have been more worried about the bear than the rain. Looks like she means business!

I would think being that close to one of those beasts Cheryl, a drop of rain would be the least of your worries! Hope you had your bike handy. Smile
Superb shot.

Thanks all.

I'll post a close up shot some time Rog, and then you'll wonder how I managed with the minimum focussing distance. I don't think you can have a real appreciation of how large these bears are until you have seen them in the flesh, I certainly did not!

The directness of the bear, combined with that pastel landscape and the fine processing makes this one I would be proud to hang on my wall. This is a truly beautiful photo.

Thanks Joline for the UA, most appreciated. Quite a surprise to get an update on this shot Grin

Have plenty more in the rain for a later date. Two whole nights worth of shooting!

Credit where credit's due. That's a damn fine shot! Just don't go and spoil it by putting up a picture of a robin....

Oooops. Spoke too soon. Wink
