Happy December friends! And happy Monday! After many years of hoping I’d see a Colorado moose, 3 graced my path this fall. Unexpectedly of course, so I was rather unprepared, fidgeting with lenses in hopes to capture the grandeur of a Moose, while being mindful not to disturb the wild creature or provoke them to charge. The scene below was captured a couple of months ago on our way out of Colorado. We were cruising down a two lane mountain highway, passing by remnants of a once lively place, when I spotted the moose grazing in front of what used to be a motel. It was in the early hours of the morn and we were the only car on the road, we slowed down, backed up and I reached for my camera bag in the back seat. Our dog, Styx, was equally excited, his panting and squealing shaking the truck like too much bass. The moose was obviously aware of us but rather unfazed, carrying on with its continental motel breakfast. It was a real challenge to produce a clear image but I loved this scene too much not to share.
What’s the wildest animal you’ve crossed paths with?
As always, thank you all for joining me here and until next time,
