In June 2012 we visited Rocky Mountain National Park for the first time.  We only had a couple of days to spend there, but that was enough time to get some amazing nature photography!  The landscapes were impressive as were the amount of big game and small critters available to see.  Elk were everywhere and I had a very close encounter with one particularly impressive bull.  While in a crouched position, I waited with my wide angle lens as one grazed nearby.  As he approached, I remained very still and snapped away.  By the time I realized how close he had gotten, it was too late to move without spooking him.  I just sat and he kept moving ever closer.  Finally he was within arm's reach and I just froze.  I took no photos during this time for fear the sound of the shutter would startle him, putting me in harms way.  He stopped grazing for a moment and lifted his head from the grass to lock eyes with mine.  It was magical.  What a humbling experience to be in such close proximity to such a majestic creature.  I waited until he was comfortable moving on and finally I got up and walked away, shaken but so thankful for this once-in-a lifetime experience!  These are some of our favorite shots from our trip!
