Time to Be in the Mountians!

I can feel it. The weather is slowly changing as the evenings and mornings are getting cooler. The leaves on the trees are starting to show some hints that their colors might soon be changing, too. Yep, I can feel it–it’s time to be in the mountains again!

I absolutely love this time of year. It is so beautiful and even the wildlife is becoming more active. The breeding season of the elk feature bugle sounds and sights that are breathtaking and photogenic.

This weekend I will be in the mountains with my son, James, to see and photograph the elk. I can’t wait. It’s only going to be a one day trip but at least we will see firsthand how the elk rut is going. We hope to hear some ear-piercing bugles, see some sparing, and capture some of this action with our cameras. It’s going to be sweet!

There is no place like the mountains and there is no place I’d rather be than in the mountains behind my viewfinder!

Here’s a photo of my colleague and professional photographer, Dick McCreight behind his viewfinder.

  1. Bob I hope you have a safe and productive trip this weekend. I will be looking forward to a post to see what you found. I guess I will be seeing you in about another week. I am looking forward to it.

  2. Thanks, Brad! It’s going to be an interesting day… pick up the kids after school, drop Lydia off at her friend’s house, and then travel to the mountains. I can’t wait! I am just about packed for the one-day trip–just need to get the flash cards reformatted and the camera gear packed. I probably won’t make it much before dusk tonight, but that will leave all day tomorrow. I hope to have some photos to share on my blog and I will definitely give you an update on what we see. There is no place like the mountains!
