Elk at Dawn

Waterton Lake National Park

On our way to Waterton Lake one morning, we encountered three elk crossing the road.
By the time we pulled over, got the camera, put on the zoom lens,
I only managed to get three shots. This is one of them.
A young elk silhouetted against the early light of dawn.

I have looked at this one several times. It just really knocks me out. Love the soft backlighting and the overall mood.
