Late Evening Buck In SNP...

This photograph was taken late one evening as the sun was setting, the sky did not have the chance to turn real orange and red yet allowing me just enough room in the camera setting to get the buck and environment without having to make a silhouette. 

This four by four is a smaller buck than what I photographed most of the trip.  For Pa. he would be a nice buck and one that most would be will to take during the hunting season but for SNP he just does not compare to the others.

There was a couple of other guys with me at the time and I think I was the only one to photograph this buck, I am glad I did.  I do not know what anyone else thinks of the image but I for one like it.

What does SNP stand for? I see you have lots of posts labeled SNP. This is a great-looking picture. Not only is the buck photographed well, but the lighting for the entire picture is exquisite.

Linda, SNP iscshort for Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. It is four hours south of me on I-81. Like the Pa. Elk the whitetail are acclimated to people because they are not hunted. A beautiful place to photograph them.

Thanks Sparky, and a same to you and your family.

Fine image Brad! I love the lighting and background; you handled it perfectly. And you're right he would be an outstanding buck in hunting country.
