I found this elk farm while driving around Hesperus, CO. It had the biggest males that I have ever seen, just off the side of the road. They spooked a bit when I came up to the fence, but didn’t move far from their food source, so I was able to get this image. I wanted to highlight the lovely, large valley behind the elk, so I’m glad that this photo shows that off well.
I’m not the worlds top wildlife photographer, but I do love to see these animals. If I can show them off at all, I’m happy. Part of living in this part of the US, for me, is being close to such amazing wild creatures (and even in an elk farm, they are glorious).
Tell me… is the post-processing too blah? I can’t decide, myself.
