It’s my favorite time of the year again when the first snow falls and the days are getting shorter. Sure the summer months are nice with the warm long days but for me, I grew up like a ski bum and having snow again is paradise. The shorter days means that sunrise is later, which is great because I’m not much of a morning person but I do love sunrise photography. Best of all the big mammals across the continent are getting ready for winter which means they are shedding their summer coats and getting those nice big fluffy winter ones on. It’s a great time to be outdoors exploring the world.
This was taken a few years back in Yellowstone. It was the last light on a late fall day. This two beautiful Bull Elk were grazing along this tiny strip of exposed land. They made great subjects in the evening light. Shot with the D3 and 200-400 VR.
