Salmon fishing boats arriving at the Yakutat Cannery dock, Yakutat, Alaska. They fish the Yakutat Bay and into the Pacific Ocean. This was taken on August 31, 2012 at 05:07 a.m.. This time of year they catch Silver Salmon. When I woke up and looked out the window, i was scrambling to get dressed grab the camera and hit the beach. The water was smooth, refections perfect and two white salmon boats. Yeaaaa. The results were perfect. These fella's work hard for the catch, it felt good to get a photo of this effort. Canon 7D, f5.6, 1/30 and iso 1250 with a 24-105 at 105mm.

Location: Yakutat, Alaska
