Elk in the Mist

The pre-dawn light and mist combine to provide this bull elk a mystical atmosphere. I enjoy the gold and pink of the sky with the blue and purple of the mist of the ground. While we think elk are mountain species (and indeed this Wapiti is descended from mountain elk), 150 years ago elk roamed the Great Plains with legendary millions of bison.
