Leap about life and death

Leap about life and death
by Xiaoliang Liu

I was planning to shoot migratory salmons swimming upstream that encountered brown bears on the way to spawn. It took me two years to succeed. The plan was a failure in 2013, and so I returned in 2014. I was waiting in the Alaska Kent National Reserve for four days and was finally able to get satisfactory images at last.
