Sunrise On Winslow Hill...

Yesterday I mentioned being in northern Pennsylvania for the rut and that the shooting was not as good as last year. I did not bring home as many keepers as last year, some were because there was not as much action, some because I was not always in the right place and others because I did not always perform with the camera like I should have. The one thing I did bring home was many silhouettes this one was taken last Wednesday morning as the sun was starting to come up. The sky took on a pink appearance and this bull showed up on top of the hill. It turned out to be one of my favorites from the trip. This particular morning was one of the better times, I video taped a fight between bull 8A and another when it was to early to get photos and I photographed the same two bulls fighting again. That fight lasted for some time but they were in a slight hollow forcing me to listen to them for some time before they came into sight. Later that same evening the same two bulls did quite a bit of posturing but never actually fought. The sites and sounds were great but most of the time it was too early or too late to photograph. I rely on this trip to give me photos to spread out over a couple of months but I don't think I got enough quality shots to do that this year.

Wow, you say it wasn't like last year but it still looks like you had a good time. Sorry I couldn't make it. I just hope I see this scene in a couple weeks. Still waiting for your out west pictures.

Thanks guys, this was one of my favorites from the trip along with Friday's post.

Haney I have posted a few from out west and I will get to some more in the future. Not much wildlife and you can tell from the site that it is what I like to photograph and post.

Excellent shot Brad, definitly a keeper! This looks like the same bull that crossed the saddle as we were walking in on Tuesday evening.

I very much enjoyed shooting with you in elk country & look forward to meeting up for more.
