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.

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.

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.

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
