Photos capture the quadrennial phenomenon as millions of salmon jam B.C.'s Adams river

Sockeye return to spawn in B.C.’s Adams River every year, but every fourth year, there is a dominant run in which the number of fish increases dramatically. In off years, sometimes only a few thousand fish return, but on a dominant year, three million or more can crowd into the river, triggering a Salute to the Sockeye festival that draws tourists from around the world.

Photographer John Lehmann takes his camera into the water to capture the sockeye.
