I am so pleased to announce that one of my images has received "Honorable Mention in the Wildlife and Animal" Professional category from the Chromatic International Photography Contest.
This image has a cute story behind it. I was with Joseph, my photography friend at Rocky Mountain National Park. He was driving the car. We were on Trail Ridge Road, just beyond the Alpine Visitor's Center. Ahead of us was a line of cars. Five bull elk were grazing on the grasses right along the road. As we approached the elk, I could not get a picture because they were so close. We drove down the road and turned around. This time as we passed them, I leaned over Joseph's shoulder and snapped a super close-up of one bull elk. I was initially disappointed at being unable to get a "good shot."
When I uploaded the images from the trip onto my computer......I was surprised and hrilled with my unique close-up image of the elk.
