Last Summer I was on a cruise to Kamchatka Peninsula, where we were in search for bears. The first days we had no luck with it, but on one day we came to a bay that is known for appearances of bears. The expedition crew went ashore to check the situation and soon they told via radio that they have discovered a fresh track of a brown bear along the bank of a river that terminates in the bay.

With the last photo I wanted to capture all the different prints at the river bank together with the river in one scene. You can see the bear paws, a track of a sea gull and of course the rubber boot print of a cruise guest. Although we did not see any bear this time, observing all the prints in the sand was amazing. I've never seen a bear track in my life before and therefore was very excited about that.
