A tribute to a tributary of the Yachats River

Not satisfied to shoot Yachats Bay from every angle under the sun, clouds, moon, and stars, photographer Ken Gagne tromped off into the woods seeking a different raw beauty up the Yachats River. And yesterday he came across this burbling tributary.

Ken took this picture of what young salmon smolts need in order to grow strong enough to make their journey to the sea where they grow into adulthood – big and strong. When it’s time, the salmon return to their home waters to spawn and then die. In this photo we see big trees and thick vegetation whose shadows keep their birth and spawning creeks cool. Trees that topple and fall into these creeks also help protect salmon from predators – from birth to the last flip of their tails.

A salmon’s Garden of Eden.
