California Salmon Run

Today I began shooting underwater on a small creek in Northern California where the annual salmon migration has gotten underway. It was an amazing feeling  as these enormous salmon thrust their bodies upstream, often moving around my legs. Their purpose was unified and without doubt as these determined creatures made their journey upstream.

  1. The thought of the salmon run always makes me sad. One last ditch effort to carry on the species at the cost ones own life.
