Elk in Yellowstone

photo of the week for Sunday, 2007, November 25
Photographer: CaptPiper

I know we are headed towards winter, so this photo isn't totally time appropriate, but I found myself thinking about Elk in Yellowstone this past weekend. I did a search on Flickr for a good Elk photo and found this one. Looks like it was originally captured on film and then scanned to digital (the photographer says it was shot in '99). I especially like the natural backlight, the color of the grasses, and the spacing between the animals. The photo has a very 3 dimensional feel.
