Mama Bear (leave Me Alone)
Photo By Ronald S Norman

  • Title: Mama Bear (leave Me Alone)
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: LAKE GEORGE
  • Nearest Town: MAMMOTH LAKES
  • Brief Directions: FROM THE CITY OF MAMMOTH LAKES, CA., HEAD OUT OF TOWN TOWARDS THE SKI AREA. WITHIN A 1/4 MILE YOU WILL SEE THE SIGNS DIRECTING YOU TO TURN LEFT TO TWIN LAKES AND LAKE GEORGE.
  • Notes: THIS PHOTO SHOT WAS PLANNED FOR A LONG TIME FOR THE PURPOSE OF CAPTURING THE SIERRA NAVADA FALL COLORS. THE SUMMER AND FALL WERE SO HOT AND SO DRY, THAT THERE WERE NO FALL COLORS WORTH SHOOTING. THE MAMA BEAR SHOOT BECAME THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE TRIP. ALL OF THE EXCITEMENT AND STIMULATION ANY PHOTOGRAPHER COULD ASK FOR. RON WWW.RONNORMANPHOTOGRAHY.COM
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: MAMA BEAR WAS WORKING THE TRAIL AROUND LAKE GEORGE IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION AS MYSELF. WHEN I SAW HER COMING TOWARDS ME I QUICKLY RETURNED TO THE CAMP GROUND AND RENTED A MOTOR BOAT. IT PROVIDED THE PERFECT ACCES AND SAFETY NEEDED TO GET THIS SHOT WITH A CLEAN NATURAL BACKGROUND. THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL CAMPING AREA THERE AND GOOD FISHING. MAMA BEAR PROCEEDED TO SCARE OFF ALL OF THE FISHERMAN AND THEN PROMPTLY ATE THEIR FRESH CATCH STILL ON THE STRINGER.

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Pelicans are great, all the way around. I like the shooting up angle. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
