Cold, Cold, Cold day. Colors match the mood, Quiet no wind and nothing but marching sound of Hooves. But was a stellar site, made my day.

Nice shot. It looks very cool as a pano shot. Try cropping the image up to just below the last animal and remove about 1/3 of the sky. It changes the whole perspective.

That looks good. Great capture. That is so cool that you are able to view stuff like that and on top of it, get a photo. I am jealous.

Thanks again. I truly appreciate the Idea, I love the people on this forum and the vast knowledge. I am blessed where I live for sure. Was told tonight by fish and game of 400+ head wintering about 45min from here with some truly monster bulls. Hope to find them tomorrow.

Good job, prefer the original over the cropped version. Has room to breathe in the composition. Crop is too claustrophobic to my eye.

I want to try a print of this so I will probably do some fine tuning and maybe add just a little on the bottom. But I think overall the crop works better for me.

Very nice find and photo. I would be happy with either the original or the cropped version. Don't believe I've ever seen this many bulls together at one time in the wild. Maybe you will get a few pics of them with a little snow on the ground. I think that would be very interesting also.:-)

Very nice shot, I'm counting 24 bulls, unbelievable, that must have been exciting to see that many in one herd.

That is a whole lot of bull(s) ;) Very cool; it's always fun to find a big herd wandering around.

Wow! Love this capture. What a sight to see that would be, but to actually catch it forever. Thanks for sharing.

As for crop, I would def use the crop you did on the bottom part of pic but leave the sky, so the direction they are moving into has a little more "space"

Amazing shot. Was that taken in Yellowstone?

No, not Yellowstone, this is roughly around Twinfalls ID. These elk are as wild as they come.
