Environmental Portrait of Elk
9

Taken at 12,000 feet in Rocky Mountain National Park. Moments later, the view was taken back by nature.

This is another older image I found during my storage migration.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Great photo with every thing balanced.  It's is nice to see a picture with the elk still in velvet.

Hi Morris,

this is a fine example of the views and a bachelor herd.  In Colorado this year we've had over 1100 sq miles of forest fire damage.  It will be interesting to see how the damaged areas recover.

Did you use trail ridge road, the highest continuous paved road in North America, or did you get there via Fall River Road ?  Both routes have lots of scenery.

Thank you for sharing this one with us, here at dpreview.

Mike
