Early Morning Encounter


Photo Information
Rocky Mountain National Park was our destination of choice on our trip last year. We saw a few animals from afar, but I was never satisfied with the photos that I took. On our last day, as we were leaving the park early in the morning, we came across a few of these majestic elks by the side of the road. That was the high point of our trip for me.

Lovely capture, I like the backlighting (well sidelighting really but 'looks like') especially.

The lighting around the antlers is what makes this for me
