Bull Elk, Full Moon • My best friend serendipity was busy helping me again on this photo.  This day I was contracted to lead a private tour out of West Yellowstone.  I scheduled a pre-dawn pickup so we could photograph the rutting elk. Shortly thereafter I found the elk herd and told my clients to get their gear.  It was only then they told me they weren't photographers and that they were there just for me to show them the animals.   They did though encourage me to go shoot them myself while the light and action was good and they would watch.   

What a morning I accidently had, I usually work out of Jackson Wyoming and here I was starting a tour from West Yellowstone, up at a photographers hour with general safari guests who usually prefer a latter start.  But here I was photographing elk below a setting moon as sunrise.  Serendipitous? That answer would be yes.

Because the sun wasn't quite yet up, I had no light.  I was shooting with a 400mm F/5.6; hence the huge moon, and I could only achieve a shutter speed of 50th of a second.  An impossible shot that was achieved. Lucky? That answer would be yes.

Product information

Traditional Fine Art Prints • I have all fine art prints printed at Bay Photo, an internationally known custom color lab.  After printing, Bay Photo ships the print to me for inspection and signing, I then ship them along to you. This takes awhile, be patient.

I spec them on “Moab’s  Lasal Exhibition Luster” photo paper. This paper weighs in at a healthy 300gsm, ideal for gallery and exhibition prints, the new fourth-generation coating ensures the highest possible d-max and color holdout. With product names like Entrada, Colorado, and Lasal its easy to see the source of inspiration for Legion Paper's Moab brand. Created in Moab, UT surrounded by the endless red rock wonders of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the Colorado River, and the LaSal Mountains, the Moab line of archival, digital imaging papers continues to rely on that inspiration to design premium solutions for digital photographers and artists.

Your paper print product will come pre-mounted on 3/16" Gator Foamboard, a very rigid, durable, and lightweight backing that will not warp, the premium backing for fine art prints. Having messed up prints myself putting them on mountaing board you will appreciate the extra effort and expanese.
