At the end of their third summer at sea Coho salmon return to freshwater. As they near their natal streams they frequently linger close to shore among kelp beds feasting on small herring-like fish as a final energy boost before tackling the rigours of spawning. I love the stained glass effect that occurs when sunlight shines through the translucent kelp fronds and have tried to give the viewer a sense of this visual highlight.
