Bugling Elk Taking A Break
This bugling elk decided he needed a break from all the girl chasing and rival sparring, so he plopped down right in the middle of this cool field in Rocky Mountain National Park. He had dozed off for just a bit when another elk let loose with a bugle off in the distance. He opened his eyes and let out a powerful bugle in response - and I snapped a photo
Shortly after this shot, he stood back up to gather his girls back together. That’s when a small rival came up from the other side of the road behind a large group of photographers. Now, the guy in this photo is more than a little dangerous, and you never want to be between a bull and his harem – or a rival (cuz he’ll plow right through you to get to the challenger).
I noticed what was happening and I stayed to the right, but there were more than a few of my fellow photographers who didn’t have the good sense to do the same. Well, they got a pretty good lesson in biology that day as he charged the line of camera men. No one got hurt, and it was actually kind of funny to watch as these guys scattered away with surprised, horrified looks on their faces – backpacks, tripods, and cameras all flung every which way.
Anyhow, THAT’S why it’s important to respect and understand any animal you’re photographing.
About Our Prints....
We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.
Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:
Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.
Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.
Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.
All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).
Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.
We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.
Thanks for your interest!
