NEVADA BIGHORN SHEEP AND MOUNTAIN GOAT

Well...I did the Sheep Shots thing again. This time I had company. You may think this gallery is filled with just a bunch of shots taken of a bunch of sheep and goats. Ok...you'd be right. BUT, what you don't know is the extraordinary experience we had...behind the scenes. Two photographers from Reno I had met on a previous photo outing and a photographer from Elko that we just happened to meet the first day of our bighorn sheep excursion set off up the steep rocky terrain in hopes of finding the sheep. We spent three days hiking the Ruby Mountains in Lamoille Canyon. These photos tell the story of mingling amongst the sheep, having lunch with the ewes and young rams, probably getting closer than we should have but coming away with much more than just pictures; a bonding of friendships and lasting memories of one incredible adventure. Thanks to Tim Torell and Mike Horsley from Reno and Kevin Lee from Elko. What an amazing three days of shooting sheep and goats along with freezing our fannies off in the evenings shooting star trails. I loved every minute! Thank you!

Check out Tim's website: http://www.digitalwildlifeimages.com. A superb wildlife photographer, he also takes the most amazing star trail images!

KEEP CHECKING BACK AS I WILL CONTINUE TO POST IMAGES AND THE STORIES OF THIS WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! NEWEST IMAGES WILL BE AT THE END OF THE GALLERY.
