I just received word that the two images depicted below have been recognized as “Highly Commended for Photographic Excellence” in the recent Denver Audubon Society’s Share the View international photographic competition. On Wednesday, February 11, 2015, I will be recognized for my entries at The Wildlife Experience, IMAX Auditorium, in Parker, Colorado, just south of Denver.
“Foggy Morning at Sprague Lake”
American Elk – Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
Although the annual elk rut was still a few weeks away, this young bull was getting an early start as he courts this cow during the early morning hours at Sprague Lake.
Wood Buffalo (Bison) – Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta; Canada
Before me lay this beautiful mountain lake; nearby a herd of bison were grazing. I visualized this image in my mind and began urging the bison into position. Fortunately, they obeyed. Once again, Nature smiled upon me as she waved her magic wand.
