Photographer's Note

It was December 31, the last day of the year and and I was at Yellowstone National Park. I rose early to catch first light. Outside it was zero degrees F.

Near the town of Cooke City, Montana but still within the boundaries of the park I spotted a bull elk walking along a ridge line in the shade silhouetted against the adjascent hillside.

I just had enough time to stop the car and get one photograph before the elk slipped away never to be seen again.

Scanned using a Nikon Super Coolscan 8000 at 4,000 dpi.
Edited in photoshop CS to crop, saturate the reddish/brown rocks and sharpen.
