Photographing the Photographer


My attention is usually riveted upon the wildlife we are pursuing. Sometimes I must remind myself to take advantage of other opportunities.

Such was the case Friday morning as Willard set up the video to capture the sunrise as the first rays of light began to wash over the landscape. I was totally unaware of the two cow elk bedded in this photograph until I loaded this image in Photoshop


A few minutes later as the colors in the eastern sky developed I captured this image of Willard facing away from the sunrise and towards the sounds of an approaching bull who was bugling as he came.

Both of these images were made with the 24-105mm lens at ISO1600.

Very neat images. Before sunrise is such a great time of day in Benezette. I like the morning fog.

Beautiful shots! It's easy to get focused on taking shots of the wildlife, but sometimes the best story is behind the scenes.

If you didn't hint at the cows being there, I would have missed it. Had to click to see. What a great image!
