A grizzly in the grass

From a couple of years ago during my last visit to the Khutzeymateen on British Columbia’s west coast in the Great Bear Rainforest.  I reworked this image for a black and white photography contest.  I liked how monochrome palette highlighted the textures in the wet fur and the sedge grass. But, for me, it’s those eyes that steal the show and make the image.

    Bears are really big and scary. One walked right by my window at our home. We live in the woods. I had eyes in the back of my head when I went outside for a while lol

    With the perfect background of the lines created by the grass, with the bear’s fur all nicely combed, it looks like a charcoal sketch.
    Sometimes black and white photos can reveal things color can’t.

  7. I especially like the combination of vertical grasses and horizontally arranged bear hair on its head.
