17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
This Moose walked right past me while photographing in the mountains of colorado at dawn.

While photographing mountains in Colorado, this Moose came walking right past me at dawn like I wasn't even there. It was too dark to capture him at first, so I waited a while for it to get light, then I looked for him. He wasn't far away, so I grabbed my longer lens and waited for him to make a move. He actually dug a hole in the sand and layed down for a while, then he got up and walked right past me for this image. What a great experience it was to capture him in his elements.
