Sockeye salmon schooling at the mouth of Knutson Creek

With so many salmon returning to spawn in Bristol Bay, Alaska this year there were many opportunities to get breathtaking shots of large schools of sockeye. This is a shot of one of those large schools of sockeye salmon waiting to enter Knutson Creek in Lake Iliamna.
