My wife and I recently returned from a week and a half in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. I have to tell you this is some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. As many of you know from my photos, I get up very early in the morning to catch the best light for my photos. Vacation was no different...up at 5AM then hop in the car and chase the light. My wife is not an early riser, so I would come back around 10AM and get her. We would then either hike to the location I would photograph the next morning or just drive and explore. I have attached several photos of the trip, but you can see them all my going to this link Rocky Mountain National Park Gallery
As much as I loved photographing the landscape,
I became addicted to photographing the elk. These beautiful creatures are quite abundant in the park. It was the rut season, mating, and the bulls with their antlers were majestic.
My last shot in this post is Horseshoe Park. I spent several early mornings here. Most of the time I had all this to myself. The warm morning sun touching the mountains along with the sounds of the elk were so peaceful. So few people get to see the beauty of natures early morning performances.
My next post will be about my shows coming up in 2013. I am real excited about how I will be presenting my images to you. I just recently received my acceptance to the WITAN French Market to be held in February. Check the posted schedule for more details.
