This was day one in Rocky Mountain National Park and it was a great greeting – “Rut of the Rockies”. This shot at sunset summed up the trip. Plenty of bugling as the elks were in full rut, aspens were starting to change color and the weather was perfect. The bull was chasing cows in his harem across the meadow and also chasing other bulls away. This shot encompasses his dominance over the vastness of the valley , as well as the natural beauty around this ritual and ecosystem.
