Sheep and Marmots - RMNP

Went to RMNP today, and got some great photos of the sheep. They were shedding their coats, so they looked really ‘sheared’.

We went up trail ridge, and saw the most awesome family of marmots. They are usually so skittish you can never get their picture since they run and hide. Luckily I had a 400 mm lens on my camera, so was able to get close up without being close up.

Rocky Mtn National Park - Elk and Foliage oh my!

Went up to Rocky Mountain National Park today to shoot some Elk - unfortunately there weren't a lot of elk to TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS of.   (All of you hunters shame on you for thinking I meant a gun!)

I did meet up with Scott Steinbook, who was fishing in the Big Thompson River.  I had to take a photo of him as I thought it will be a great cover for Field and Stream Magazine!!
