Yellowstone National Park
Photographed in warm light near sunset on Mt. Everts in the autumn in Yellowstone National Park. This full curl ram made a striking portrait with the horn shadow on his head matching the silhouetted horn on the far side. It was a slow, tough climb to reach this herd of pre-rut rams. After several hours of grazing on the steep slopes this ram walked to the ridgeline and bedded down allowing me to take this portrait image.
