Photography with the McGills with special guests, Big Horn Sheep

Yesterday I took out the McGill’s for a photo safari. We shot sunrise then heading out looking for animals. The elk soon showed up and we got some good shots with them. Then we did some landscapes and snow abstracts and headed to find Big Horn Sheep. We found 3 ewes up on the hill so I broke out the 500mm added the teleconverter and John went to town shooting. After lunch at Deleo’s Deli we found the resident elk at McGregor Mtn Lodge already growing their new set of antlers. Up the road we found 25 more big horns and I got the picture below. We wrapped up the day spotting 3 coyotes too far to out to shot and shot the water at the alluvial fan. Good day even though it was sunny.

Newlywed Photo Tour

The other day I took out the Adwell’s, newlyweds on their honeymoon. We had a great trip that was put over the top by a coyote walking right past us. There is something absolutely amazing about being in the presence of a predator, and capturing that in an image can be breath taking.

This shot was taken by the newly appointed Mrs. Adwell.

Epic Snowshoe Sunrise

This morning I took out photographer Tim Fleming www.timfleming.com and family out to shot sunrise. The drive up in the park gave us snow covered roads with the threat of having to turn around. The snow was 4 inches deep in the parking lot with fresh powder still falling. After Nymph Lake we were breaking trail in about 10-20 inches of snow. Seeing the Dream Lake area with no snowshoe tracks was just beautiful. We got some nice morning light and had the ice of Dream Lake to greet us. What an amazing way to start the day!
