Bull of the Forest (2)

Bull of the Forest (2)

In this shot, it was a little later and he had moved across the road putting the forest behind him. I like his pose and while I could probably take out the stick that points to his foreleg, I don’t feel it upsets the composition enough to justify the work. It would also break the PSA nature and wildlife competition rules.

This handsome bull elk was foraging in the woods with his harem. They were between the road and Yellowstone Lake conveniently at a pullout, so it was easy to stay in the car and shoot through the open window.

Driving east on US 50, the Lincoln Highway. Here in Nevada the highway is characterized as “The Loneliest Highway”. This mid-April morning, we dropped down from the mountain pass in time for sunrise coupled with a cloud inversion in the valley bottom.

Mormon Row Privy

Mormon Row is located in Teton National Park. The barn, located a few hundred feet from this outhouse, is the normal focus of most photographers here. I thought I would start the year, and our site redesign, by dumping 2020 and 2021 into a pit.
