Photographer's Note

This was taken on the backside of Mount Timpanogos a couple of days ago. I left home before it got light and headed for one of my favorite locations. It was overcast (it's been raining all week) and the sun was just coming up when I got out of my truck. As I was setting up for the shot I could hear the bugling of the elk echoing around the hills, interrupting the silence of the early morning. The beauty and majesty of the event was only shattered by my return to the office...

I metered the trunk of the closest tree wanting to place it somewhere between zones 7 & 8 (I'm still trying for the "Dana Rees" effect). I stopped down to f/16, still wnnting sharpness with depth of field. It looks much better at full resolution than it does cut down to ~800 pixels...
