Just got back from a week on the road to Estes Park, CO.  Actually Rocky Mtn. National Park.
I went to photograph the Elk down from the mountians for their annual Rut.  I love
the sound of the bull bugleing.  Had some pretty crappy weather.. No sun while
the elk were around.  Too much rain, but all in all it was still a great trip.

I love your gallery!  You do some of the finest work.  People occationally ask me - ever thought of working for Nat Geo?  Then I think of your work (and others on this site) and have to say - there are so many that are so much better than I. 

Shining example of great nature photography!

Your elk photography is very amazing! I know this is professional work and not stock photography, so I was wondering if I could reference some of your photos for drawing and paintings? I don't do any photo manip aert or digital art. Thought I would ask!!
