  5. Keith,

    Great shots. I too love to photo elk.

    I have a cabin rented for a week in October just outside of Estes Park,
    Colorado.

    Hope I can get some nice shots like yours.

    Wow

    Excellent. Love them both. Quite a contrast from great old dad to the young one. They are beautiful animals.
     
  10. Fantastic shots you got these incredible animals north of me the birds are to the south here I am stuck in the middle with..... wasnt that a song. Seriously great shots
     
  11. Great shots Keith, both are fantastic but I can't help really liking the young calf one.

  12. :smile: :smile: Good grief!! That is an outta control wonderfully stupendous shot!!:smile: :smile:
     
  13. Beautiful shots as always, Keith!!! You sure have been catching some great shots of these guys. Are these all from Jasper area?

    I know what you mean about the pack from your mountain goat post. I think my Photo-trekker weighs about 35 pounds, before I add a lunch and water bottle. If I get out and do a backpacking trip I'm going to have to be pretty selective about what I take. :smile:
     
  14. Wow, Keith! The first image is just terrific! :cool: :biggrin:

    I've never been that close to one, in the wild... (I am a city boy, I guess :wink: ). Aren't you afraid he might charge and pick you up by the rear-end with those big antlers? :Whistle: :rolleyes:
     
  15. Oh Keith you always make me feel inadequate when you post your great shots :)


    Serioulsy these are great. So sharp and well balanced that the almost jump out of the picture, 500mm?

    give us more!
