A Little Bit of Everything
I’ve been so busy and focused on photography lately, I feel like I’m leaving some stuff out of the blog. Photos that I want to share, but have kinda skipped over. So these photos are a random sprinkling of things I have photographed in the past couple of weeks.
I have had my heart set on photographing the elk. They are not very easy to find however. They head for the timber right after the sun comes up, and you might see them again late in the evening when it’s almost dark. A friend of mine had seen them in the park early in the morning, so we headed there on Friday early. We got lucky. The shooting conditions could have been better, the sun was right in front of me, but I was glad to see them.
I love to hear them bugling, such an amazing sound. This morning was very cold so he had steam coming out of his mouth when he bugled. This was the biggest bull we saw, and he had a nice size harem too.
We had a few rainy nights, and one morning the very best photography was close up. The tall grass here turns red in the fall, it’s the most gorgeous thing. Add raindrops, and it’s magical.
Not to be outdone, the wild roses have beautiful fall leaves too.
This was a shot I just happened to see in a different way one evening. I have walked past this spot walking the dogs a thousand times.
Monday morning we got up early to drive up Togwotee pass and look for bears. As we left, the sunrise was amazing and the bison were all over.
They scratch on the old fence posts, looks like it feels good.
Oxbow bend was pretty, the fall leaves are getting amazing right now.
And this was a first for me yesterday morning, 5 deer crossing the river. 2 does, and 3 fawns.
Our time here is about to end, already. We have to leave on Monday, and I feel like I’m squeezing every ounce out of that remaining time.
