Dawn of Winter by Nate-Zeman Dawn of Winter by Nate-Zeman
To Purchase this image as an exclusive limited edition print, please click HERE

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
