Pure Yellowstone



Yellowstone 2020


I never realized just how big elk were until a small group of them walked right past me in my car on their way down to the river inside Yellowstone National Park. Weighing over 700 lbs and standing over 6 feet tall, these are incredibly beautiful animals and are a force to be respected. After they were safely in the water, cooling off and getting a drink, I positioned myself low on the river’s edge. I wanted to use the water to reflect its beautiful beige coat in the late afternoon sun. There is something so pure looking at the crystal clear mountain water rushing around him.
