[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
If nobody can see the bear here, then I will just say that I was going for a nice landscape shot. We went to Waterton on Sunday to test out my new digital camera,(which I am loving.) However, next time I will remember to charge the battery before going.
Cropped, color adjust, border added, and resized for TN.

Hi Christan
A nice capture of your bear....he's almost like " Finding Waldo" he really blends in well to his surrounding. The yellow aspen are a nice compliment to the dark green evergreens. I hope you were close to your car.

Hi Christan,
I was going to say nice landscape and fall colours and then I saw the bear! Good job in capturing him along with the nice scenery.

Not a bad shot of the bear, Christan (that's about as close as I'd be willing to get to a grizzly, though I have been much closer to black bears). But this is a wonderful looking fall landscape, too. Great colors. I would like to see it BIGGER! You might also consider cropping a bit off the fg to bring the bear closer and put more focus on it and the trees in the bg.

Hello Christan

Nicely done on this shot.The vista is beautiful,with vivid colours.I like the composition,there is a neat lay of the land.Well balanced with the lake in the distance.The bear lumbering through this setting is gravy.TFS


Congratulations, Christan,
great encounter, magnificent light and wonderful rich colours, fine details. Would love to see this beautiful image as large as can be: 800 pixels width - wanna see that bear even closer! My best regards,

again, some more crap from bottom could change the shot better.

Beautiful colors, with fauna as an added bonus.
