Elk Scenery

When shooting wildlife I usually find myself pursuing frame filling close up images. Sometimes the scenery surrounding the animals demands zooming out to capture not only the animals but also their environment.

Such was the situation on this morning with the elk pasturing in the meadow as the fog swirled over the ridge beyond. For the best view click on the image to enlarge.

Hi Coy,
I totally agree with you. When I started bird photography last year I was obsessed to get beautiful pictures of this and that, but soon realize that without the environment, such a picture is not worth anything! I still love to get a nice close-up time-to-time thought!
This shot of elk scenery is wonderful and I love it! So natural!
