Elk Silhouette...

If you have not realized it by now I really love silhouette photographs with the right subject.  Unfortunately they are not always easy to obtain.  My all time favorite would have to be Coy's from Country Captures, he used it as his blog header for a year and I hated to see it go.  I could have had the same chance at that shot had I tagged along with him that night but instead I ended up with the tractor on top of the ridge photo.  I prefer beautiful sunsets or sunrise colors behind the animal but one late cloudy evening this year in Elk country I looked up to see this opportunity presenting itself.  Not wanting to pass up the moment I fired away.  I will say I got my best whitetail silhouettes this year in SNP and you will be seeing those in the future.  I hope the two links worked as it is the first time I have tried it on this new format, if not check back as I will try and fix them.

I love your new header and I like this one very much! No, it's not a brilliant orange but its very "moody"!

Love how the big guy is framed by the white cloud, great composition. Thanks for the mention; I sure did get lucky that evening with old Limpy. Looking forward to seeing what you got when we were shooting the low-wide eight together in SNP.
