My 2010 photo excursion during the Pennsylvania elk rut was plagued by drab gray skies and frequent showers. While the elk action and encounters were meeting my expectations the weather was making exceptional photographs few and far between. It was during the last moments of my last day, during the evening twilight that the sky took on a spectacular glow. It was during this brief time that I was able to capture the best images of the entire trip including the image of this same bull that graces the header of Country Captures taken a few minutes later.
If there was one thing this encounter taught me it was "It ain't over 'till its over"! Don't leave a good subject until it is absolutely too dark to shoot. You never know what will happen in the next five minutes.
