Elk in the woods

Elk in the woods

This kind of thing never happens. We were shooting a story for Le Monde in Yellowstone national park when we saw this huge elk wondering through a burnt out forest. I moved closer thinking the elk would see me and run away but instead the elk stayed. Crouching down I waited with my Alpa…. the Elk walked straight towards camera until he was about three meters away. Even in July it was pretty cold up there at 8’000 ft, I could see the steam coming out of his mouth….and hope’d he wouldn’t charge.

There will be a small edition of prints available in various sizes.
