"The Rock" is a monument to the heritage of Alaska's first city - Ketchikan. It tells the story of how Ketchikan came to be. Six of the seven figures within the sculpture represents a prominent archetype in the city's history - a fisherman, a miner, a logger, a bush pilot, a frontier woman and a Native drummer. The seventh figure represents an actual historical figure - Chief Johnson, a Tlingit who stands at the top of The Rock, symbolizing that his people were the first to make their home in southeast Alaska.

The photo is from our trip to Alaska in 2018.

More from the Beauvais Lake, AB float. The little Fuji waterproof camera does not allow for a lot of cropping and the maximum focal length is just an 140mm equivalent. This loon actually let me get close enough to get a reasonably good photo, but the pitch of it's call kept getting higher and finally the two babies dove under. You can see one just before it dove and the ripples where the other has just gone under.
Fuji Xp90 camera.

OH MY LORD !!! what a picture ! have you other pics from different angles ? you should apply for a photo contest,it's amazing!

could you possibly share the pictures uncompressed ? i'm in awe with your photo . what device is it you used to shoot it ?
Thank you for the compliment. I have other shots from this outing. I am not willing to share uncompressed files. These and most all my other photos were shot on a Fuji XT3 with an XF55-200 zoom. Not ‘high end’ gear but very good for me.

Where is it stated that multi-quoting is a requirement on MR?
