One trip single trip to Alaska got me hooked and Katmai is beginning to sound irresistable. I browsed thru many images from Katmai and noticed that the ones shot at Hallo Bay seem to be in a lot better lighting than the ones at Brooks Falls (even those shot by famous pros). For those who have been to both, could you throw in some advice and thots about this? I am not a die-hard for a salmon-in-mouth shot because I think many people have already done that and so why duplicate it further. I am looking for shots of bears with an aura and atmospheric feel (similar to Alex Bernasconi's). A few days at Hallo Bay will cost a bundle. If I were to include a private guide, it seems like it adds up to something similar to a Churchill trip for polar bears. Gee ... that's an expensive trip!
