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 just turned 68,I have 3 children, I have 10 grandchildren, 1 great grandson, been married 44 years to my 1st wife. Mostly-retired professional portrait photographer, Ex-IBMer. Passion is wildlife photography. I enjoy watching DA photographers grow and learn. Some I learn from, some I just admire.
I enjoy passing on what I've learned in 40 years of photography, I double majored in art and psychology in college. I'm a creative speller. I'm a US Marine, a viet nam vet, Like 60 minutes, , I've read almost every Dean Koontz book written. My new motto is:
"if not now? When?" So if the sun is out, I hope to be out with my cameras. Happy 2012

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!!
