We finally made it into Rocky Mountain National Park last night – this place is great! We arrived just in time to enjoy this wonderful sunset. I had no idea there is so much elk activity here – this is as good as Jasper/Banff or Yellowstone, two areas I love. My time spent with elk in those National Parks really helped me anticipate this guys movement so that I could be in the right spot in case there was a sunset – it sure all came together! I also have some sunset photos with the whole harem of elk.
It is going to be nice to be in one place for a week or so. We have only driven the first few miles of the Park road – I’m really looking forward to driving and hiking more of the park.
This was captured with my 24-105 at 58mm along with a 3 stop hard edged graduated neutral density filter.
Here are more Colorado photos.
