Elk Trip Continued

With the poor lighting conditions present Thursday morning it was necessary to use high ISO settings and low shutter speeds. Digital noise and off-colors were a problem in some of the shots.

In this shot of the herd bull rounding up his harem and forcing the cows into the woodland I used sepia toning to offset the afore mentioned problems.



My wife accompanied me on this trip and stayed busy clicking her little Lumix point & shoot. The Lumix couldn’t handle the distance involved with photographing the elk but her old wildlife photographer was well within range. :)

Nice to see you as well... I'm trying to figure out if it was you or your wife that got the best shot of the herdmaster..;o)

Very nice photo of the Elk. I like the Sepia effect. It's funny, but I've been posting photos of our Elk "trip" too. lol

How clever of you to use sepia to hide your problems. And thanks for posting a photo of yourself...and also thank your wife. ;-)

Well, it's nice to 'meet' you.
I think your wife is quite a good photographer in her own right. :)
