Dawn of Winter by Nate-Zeman Dawn of Winter by Nate-Zeman

It's only the middle of october, but the wind on the high alpine tundra carries winter on its breath. A bull elk and his harem spend the morning grazing on whats left of the grasses of an extremely short summer. Longs Peak, one of Colorado's most famous "fourteeners" is already covered in a blanket of snow. Low lying clouds, caused by temperature inversion, are stuck in the lower valleys, completing as perfect a scene as I can imagine.

Elk (Cervus canadensis) - Rocky Mountain National Park - Colorado

What a stunning shot, the colors in this capture are supurb and captivating.   Then to catch the elk walking the ridge just leaves me in awe.  Well done a simply masterful job.

as the other commenter said an intriguing kind of "pre-"atmosphere appertains to this shot, indeed.
