Driving through Yellowstone National Park in the evening we came across a large meadow with a stream and some steam vents. The colors were amazing in the golden light so we stopped to get some shots. I was working my way through some brush and deadfall, trying to get a better angle on the sunset, when I stumbled into this bull elk bedded down on the edge of the clearing. I forgot about the landscape shot, the elk never moved as I took a number of pictures. I love the way the sun is highlighting his velvet antlers.
