salmon surprises


one of the biggest surprise on the trip is to encounter those amazing salmon in a remote part of eastern Oregon. I received the great honor (from my team mates' pick) to get into the cages with those magnificent salmons. It's the fish of a life time! Knowing them migrate hundreds of miles from the ocean to this little tributary, I am humbled by those amazing creatures. Photo by BG! Thanks!

Hey Phil,

Thank you for the kind words and stopping by! I appreciated!

Your watercolors are wonderful! I love the brook trout series... it remind me a smoky trout I caught couple years ago. I am actually thinking about doing some brook trout drawings as well, putting many trout heads on the same canvas is a great idea, just like many wonderful illustration in scientific books!
Take care,
Mark
