Fish are jumpin’ ~ salmon that is. This is a great example of POTENCY.* As the water rushes down river, the salmon fight their way UP current. The tactics that each fish uses vary. Some salmon head straight for the bubbling water. Their tails wag at a rapid pace as they propel their bodies into the air, landing in the water and fighting to get further up stream. A large red belly goes off to the far right. The current is forceful there but the salmon slides along the rock, inching its way through the pounding water. Little ones fly though the air, bodies curved like a U as they hit the water only to be thrown downstream again. Off to the far right, in the quiet water, a school of salmon float, seeming to catch their breath.
Seagulls swarm and call for their territory. One grabs a crab and tears it apart on the bank. Each bird seems to have its own strategy for fishing.
Pink fireweed rises from the corner of the pointed edge where a seagull plays sentry ~ barking orders at others as they fly by.
The sound of the Russian River takes away any manmade sounds. It rushes, it pools, it bubbles, it vibrates the shores.
Ah, this is ALASKA!!! Be well… Nancy T
