A female Atlantic Salmon has arrived at the spawning grounds of a river and now looks for an area of gravel to cut  a redd , as a salmons nest is called. Many will not survive this mass event,  but a some, perhaps 10%  will make it back to the ocean  and return to spawn again. The mass migrations up river to spawning grounds is one of natures spectacles, the sight of them jumping water falls is awesome, it is also a keystone species in the food chain.

Journey's end

A female Atlantic Salmon has arrived at the spawning grounds of a river and now looks for an area of gravel to cut  a redd , as a salmons nest is called.

I did this painting many years ago on a piece of salvaged wood I thought to good to throw away and it's hung in my kitchen ever since. The painting itself nearly went wrong, but by making it an educational style image by doing the water in cross section I was able to save it!
