Alaskan Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) - Katmai National Park - Alaska

A brown bear keeps its nose to the ground in search of a bounty of food. At low tide, bears make their way onto the tidal flats and gorge on clams hidden beneath the surface. The bear's incredible sense of smell easily locates the clams, and a swift swipe of its massive paw unearths it. Unbelievably these massive predators can then pry open the shell and extract the clam with surgical like precision. The protein from clams, and from the salmon that will run later in the summer are the primary reasons brown bears grow to be so large in this part of Alaska.

Wilson Peak - San Juan Mountains - Telluride, Colorado

http://www.natezeman.com/photo/pinnacle/

The summit of Wilson Peak briefly reveals itself as high clouds move across the San Miguel Range near Telluride Colorado. Wilson Peak, not to be mistaken with the nearby Mount Wilson, tops out at an elevation of 14,023 feet (4274m). A fresh blanket of fall snow coats the magnificent valley below.

A red fox emerges from its snowy den to soak up the rays of sun on one of the first warm days of late winter. Foxes are incredible creatures that are adapted perfectly to live in the harshest of winters, but there was little doubt in my mind watching this fox that it was pleased to feel the warm sun on its back Red Fox - Keystone - Colorado http://www.natezeman.com/photo/winter-fox/

New Release - "Blue Eden" Rio Celeste - Tenorio Volcano National Park - Costa Rica

http://www.natezeman.com/photo/rio-celeste/

Deep inside the cloud forest of Tenorio Volcano National Park runs the Rio Celeste, one of Costa Rica's most impressive and curious natural wonders. The impossible blue color of the river is due to a simple chemical reaction. Sulphur emitted from volcanic activity below mixes with calcium carbonate, giving Rio Celeste this otherworldly look. The turqouise river twists and turns through emerald green rainforest, at one point dropping over an impressive waterfall.

Every once in a while it all comes together.

Nature photography at its essence is a waiting game. You spend countless hours waiting around in all kinds of weather at times when sane people are still at home in their beds. Being out there in nature is reward enough, but if you play this waiting game long enough every once and a while you get rewarded in big ways. That was the case this particular morning on the shoreline of Maroon Lake. On a typical morning at the Maroon Bells during the peak of fall you will find photographers lining the shores of the lake hoping to catch the iconic view of Colorado's most famous fourteeners reflected in the crystal lake below. It was only a few days past peak this particular morning and when I arrived at the lakeshore I was pleasantly surprised to find out I was the only person there. I waited on the sunrise, but thick clouds prevented any spectacular sunrise light from appearing. I decided to walk further down the lakeshore where the aspens were still extremely vibrant. It was then that I spotted this bull moose walking at the waters edge in the distance. He was coming my way and I had only a few seconds to pick a spot to set up my shot. I backtracked a few steps to where there was more of a clearing and framed my shot. After that I just had to wait and hope he would walk through the scene. Luckily for me the moose didn't change course and walked right through the shot I had set up. Almost immediately after I tripped the shutter, he went way up the mountainside and disappeared into some willows to eat.

Brown-Throated Sloth and Baby (Bradypus variegatus) - Punta Quepos, Costa Rica A three toed sloth rests comfortably in a tree as her adventurous baby tests its climbing skills on a precariously small branch. Sloths are mysterious creatures. They sleep up to 20 hours a day, and even when awake they stay mainly motionless. Their bodies are designed for lazy life in the forest canopies of Central and South America. Long claws and strong arms give t...

Nā Pali Coast - Kauai, Hawaii 

http://www.natezeman.com/photo/na-pali-coast/

The Na Pali Coast on the north shore of Kauai is a very special place. It is surely one of the most beautiful pieces of coastline on the planet. Emerald green volcanic mountains rise 4,000 feet above the turqouise blue water of the Pacific Ocean. Heavy rainfall runs from the mountain tops, carving the sharp ridges of this magic landscape. The pristine beaches are completely protected by sea caves which are formed by the constant surge of waves. This treacherous 15 miles of coast, cliffs, beaches and waterfalls is largley inaccessible. The best way to truely capture the grandeur of the Na Pali Coast is from the birds eye view, which in this case required a helicopter

New Release - "Shrine Pass"

Indian paintbrush adds a splash of red to an already vibrant scene. Late evening clouds lazily float over The Gore Range in the distance. The landscape you're looking at spends most of its year hidden by heavy snowpack. There isn't much time between the spring meltoff and the new autumn snows, but during that brief reprieve the mountains reveal themselves in spectacular fashion.
